A loan of $2,450 helped a member to buy a large quantity of maize and cassava flour for resale.


Twizerimana Group's story

Alice is a member of the Twizerimana group and she lives in Gitega. She is a 39-year-old widow and the mother of three children, aged 12 to 22, who all go to school.

Alice has been selling maize and cassava flour for five years.

This is her fourteenth loan with Turame. With this loan, financed by KIVA, she will increase her capital and buy a large quantity of maize and cassava flour for resale, in order to make more money.

With the earnings from her business, Alice is able to meet her family's needs: she manages to feed and clothe her children and pay their school fees.
