Angeline's story

Angeline is part of Bikorwavyimana Group. She's one of the victims of the fire of the Central Market in Bujumbura. She's been a client of Kiva's partner, Turame, for five years. She lives in Bujumbura and is married to Melchior. Together, they have four children, aged 18 to 39. One of them attend school. Angeline used to sell clothing (underwear, pajamas) at the Central Market in Bujumbura. In the fire, she lost merchandise valued at BIF 1'000'000 (ca US$ 640). With this Kiva loan, she will rebuild her working capital and buy clothing (underwear, pajamas) to resell, in order to continue making a living.
