A loan of $3,525 helped a member to buy merchandise (bananas, beans, salt, etc.) for her shop.


Yagamahoro Group's story

Spès is a member of the Yagamaro group and lives in Gitega. She is 31 years old and married to Philippe, a merchant. The couple have 5 children together, aged between 7 months and 14 years, 2 of whom attend school.

Spès has been running a shop, selling items like bananas, beans and salt, for 7 years. This is her 14th loan from Turame. Her Kiva-sponsored credit will increase her capital and allow her to buy a lot of merchandise (bananas, beans, salt, etc.) to resell in her shop, so that she can earn more money. In the coming days, she would like to buy some goats so that she can have some manure, and resell the goats after they have bred.
