A loan of $3,825 helped a member to increase her capital and buy a lot of clothing to re-sell so that she can earn more money.


Ramiriza Group's story

The Ramiriza group is made up of 27 women and 7 men. When the photo was taken, two of the group members (Goduile and Anastasie) were sick. They were replaced by their husbands in the photo.

Denise is the featured borrower of the Ramiriza group and lives in Bujumbura. She is 42 years old and married to Isidore. The couple have two children. Their youngest is 17 and their eldest is 18. They are both in school. Denise has been selling clothing for 20 years.

This is Denise's 12th loan from Turame. She will use her Kiva loan to increase her capital and buy a lot of clothing to re-sell so that she can earn more money.

In the future, Denise would like to have 1,000,000 Burundian francs in capital and see her children complete their education.
