Amahoriwacu Group's story

Pierre, a 43-year-old widower, lives in Gitega and is a member of the Amahoriwacu group. He has four children, aged 13 to 20, two of whom are in school.

He has been selling grocery products (rice, salt, soaps...) for the past four years.

Pierre is on his second loan with Turame. With this loan, received from KIVA, he will increase his capital and buy a large quantity of grocery products (rice, salt, soap) for resale in his shop. His goal is to earn more.

In the future, he would like to start selling fritters, on a retail basis, to his customers.
