Dusangire I Group's story

R. Mystique is a part of the Dusangire I group and lives in Gitega. She is 40 years old and is marred to Pascal, a mason. Together they have three children, aged from 6 to 12 years old; all go to school.

R. Mystique has been selling beer and fizzy lemonade for 14 years. She is on her fourth loan with Turame. With this Kiva loan, she is going to increase her capital and buy many cases of beer and fizzy lemonade to resell and earn more.

In the years to come, she would like to buy a piece of land, raise laying hens, and search for a water and electricity hookup to help her hairdressing project.
