Tambuka Group's story

Odette belongs to the Tambuka group and lives in Gitega. She is 33 years old and is married to Faustin, a merchant. The couple have 7 children together who all study. She has been selling beer for 6 years. This is her 10th loan from Turame. Her Kiva-sponsored loan will increase her capital and allow her to buy a large quantity of beer for resale, so that she can earn more money. The profits generated by her business enable her to meet her family's needs (food, clothing, healthcare).
