Tugume Group's story

Médiatrice, age 23, is a member of the group Tugume. She lives in Gitega. She is married to a merchant named Thérence.

Médiatrice has been selling medicine for domestic animals for nine years. This is her 11th loan cycle with Turame, and she will use her credit to bolster her working capital. She plans to stock up on domestic animal medicine for resale, thereby boosting her revenue.

The profits earned through her activity have allowed her to buy a cow, four pigs and some chickens.
