Dushigikire Group's story

Pascal is a member of the Dushigikire group and lives in Bubanza. He is 60 years old and married to Georgette, who is a shopkeeper. They have eight children between the ages of three and twelve, of whom six go to school.

He has been selling corn for 15 years.

This is his first loan from Turame. With his Kiva credit, he will increase his capital and buy a large quantity of corn for resale, in order to earn more.
