Abakunzi Group's story

Gérard is part of the group Abakanguzi and lives in Bujumbura. He is 36 years old and married to Espérance, a farmer. Together they have two children, aged 3 and 4 years old, of whom one is a student.

Gérard has been doing commerce in shoes for fifteen years. He is on his third Turame loan. With the KIVA loan he is obtaining, he is going to increase his capital and purchase many shoes to resell, so as to earn more.

In the coming years, he would like to purchase some livestock and see his children go into commerce, like himself.
