Dukore Group's story

J. d'Arc is a member of the Dukore group, which is a group of women. J. d'Arc lives in Bujumbura. She is 40 years old and married to Longin, a driver. They have six children aged between five and fourteen, all of which attend school.

She has been selling building materials (pipes, reinforcing iron for concrete,) for seven years.

This is her seventh loan from Turame. With her Kiva credit she will increase her capital and buy a large quantity of construction materials (cement, reinforcing iron,..) for resale in order to earn more.

With the profits from her commerce, she manages to meet the daily needs of her family and pay the costs of sending her children to school.

Note: The day that the loan was granted, Ildégonde was ill and gave power of attorney to her husband Jonathan, who appears in the photo in her place.

In this group: Espérance, J D'arc, Ildégonde, Fidès, Nicélate*, Anabelle
