Keburana Group's story

Annociate is a member of the Keburana group and lives in Gitega. She is a 25-year-old single mother of 2 children, aged 5 and 8, one of whom goes to school. She is taking care of a child who is a member of her extended family and also a student. She has been selling groceries (beans, rice, etc.) in her shop for 7 years. This is her 7th loan from Turame. Her Kiva-sponsored loan will increase her capital and allow her to buy many food items (beans, rice, etc.) for her to resell in her shop, so that she can earn more money. She manages to take care of her family's needs (food, lodging and clothing) with the earnings from her business.
