Tuzokora Group's story

Domine belongs to the Tuzokora group and lives in Bujumbura. She is 55 years old and married to Damien who is a farmer. The couple have eight children aged between 32 and 35. Six of their children are studying.

Domine has been buying and selling for 15 years. She is taking out her tenth loan from Turame. She will use this Kiva loan to increase her capital and start up a new business: buying gravel to re-sell. This will make her more money.

With the profits she makes from her business, Domine covers her children's school fees. She has paid healthcare costs since her hospitalization.

In this group: Aline, Domine, Céléstin, Béatrice, Ninette, Stany, Melchior
