A loan of $2,325 helped a member to buy plumbing materials (pipes, elbows).


Vyukakare Group's story

Clothilde is a member of the Vyukakare and lives in Bujumbura. She is 40 years old and is married to Jean, a plumber. The couple have 6 children, aged between 1 and 17 years old, five of whom attend school.

Clothilde has been selling plumbing materials (pipes, elbows, etc.) for 5 years. This is her 6th loan from Turame. Her Kiva-sponsored loan will increase her capital and allow her to buy a lot of plumbing materials such as pipes and elbows for resale, so that she can earn more money. In the coming years, she would like to buy a plot of land, build a house and watch her children get an education and finish their studies.

In this group: Audace, Clothilde, Rehema, Glorose
