Eric's story

Eric is a member of Bikorwavyimana Group. He's one of the victims of the fire at the Central Market in Bujumbura. He's been a client of Kiva's partner, Turame, for five years. He lives in Bujumbura and is married to Godelieve.

He used to sell cloths (hand towels, tablecloths, sheets, …) at the Central Market in Bujumbura. He lost merchandise valued at BIF 5'800'000 (ca US$ 3700) in the fire.
