Mutambara Group's story

Antoine is a member of the Mutambara group and lives in Rumonge. He is 35 years old and married to Espérance, a storekeeper. They have three children aged between 5 and 9 years old, 2 of whom attend school. They are also responsible for an orphan. For the past 10 years, Antoine has been selling bananas and pineapples. He is asking for his second loan from Turame, in order to increase his capital and purchase large quantities of bananes and pineapples. He uses the profits from his activity to ensure the food needs of his family. In the coming years, he hopes to foray into agriculture by renting out his palm trees that produce oil, in order to sell the fruits of these trees and begin to save for his children. He would also like to see his children attend school.
