A loan of $2,950 helped a member to buy spare parts.


Dukomezegusenga Group's story

Barnabé is a member of the Dukomezegusenga group and lives in Bujumbura. He is 38 years old and married to Euphrasie, a retailer. The couple have 4 children, aged between 10 and 14 years old, who all attend school. He has been selling spare parts for cars for 5 years. This is his 9th loan from Turame. The Kiva-sponsored loan that he receives will increase his capital and allow him to buy a lot of spare parts for resale, to earn more money. In the coming years, he would like to own his own garage and see his children get an education.
