Abanyeshaka Group's story

Espérance is a member of the Abanyeshaka group and lives in Bujumbura. She is 50 years old and married to Charles, a watchman. They have four children aged between 16 and 28, three of which are students. She has two dependent grandsons who are students. She has been selling bananas, fresh manioc and potatoes for 28 years. This is her 10th loan from Turame. With her Kiva credit, she will increase her capital and buy potatoes and beans for sale as new products. The income from her commerce enables her to meet the family’s needs. Over the coming years she would like her children to continue their studies so that they in turn can help her in the future.
