Warakoze Group's story

Jeanne is a member of the Warakoze group and lives in Kayanza. She is 56 years old and is married to Jerome, a merchant. Together they have seven children, aged 14 to 30, of whom one goes to school. Jeanne has been selling banana beer for 20 years. She is on her 14th loan with Turame. With this Kiva-financed loan, she is going to increase her capital and buy bananas to make a large quantity of banana beer, which she will resell to earn more. In the coming years, Jeanne would like to build a house and see her children continue with their studies.
