Abagonarimwe Group's story

Goreth is a member of the Abagonarimwe group, and lives in Gitega. She is 40 years old, and is married to Bangiricenge. They have five children together, aged from 11 to 18, all of whom are in school.
She has run a small store (selling rice, beans, salt, etc) for the last five years, and is on her fourth loan with Turame.
With this Kiva loan, she will grow her working capital and buy a large quantity of stock for her store (rice, beans, salt, etc) that she will resell to make a profit. In the coming years, she would like to see her children continue their studies.
