Abizera Group's story

Acquiline is a member of the Abizera group and lives in Gitega. She is 35 years old and is marred to Deo, a merchant. Together they have four children, aged from 6 to 12 years old. Two of the children go to school.

Acquiline has been selling rice, beans, etc. in her shop for 12 years. She has been with Turame for three years. With this Kiva-backed loan, she is going to increase her capital and buy a number of goods for her store (rice, beans...) to resell in order to earn more.

In the coming years, she would like to open a second store.
