Aimable is a part of the Girishaka group and lives in Bujumbura. He is 31 years old and is married to Violette, who is a farmer. They have 3 children together who range in age from 1 to 5 years old.

He started selling corn 4 years ago. This is his third loan with Turame. With his Kiva loan, he will increase his capital and buy a large quantity of corn to resell and increase his revenue.

In the years to come, he would like to run his business with his own capital and without having to resort to loans. He would also like to see his children go to school.
