Haguruka Group's story

Violette is a member of the Haguruka group and she lives in Bujumbura. She is 36 years old and is married to Pierre, a storekeeper. They have five children together between the ages of 1 and 14, three of whom currently receive an education.

She has been working in a store (selling rice, beans, green vegetables, etc...) for 10 years.

This will be her fifth loan with Turame. Upon receiving this Kiva loan, this will increase her capital and allow her to buy large quantities of rice, beans and green vegetables which she will re-sell for profit.

In the coming years, she would like to build her own house and see her children receive an education.

In this group: Pénine, Evelyne, Soleil, Floride, Alice, Violette, Julienne, Cyprien, Diane, Goreth, Dieudonné, Josiane, Léonie, Constantine, Evariste, Espérance
