Gifurwe Group's story

Ferdinand is part of the group called Gifurwe and lives in Bubanza. He is 32 and is married to Pascasie, a merchant. Together they have five children, from 2 to 9 years of age, four of whom are school-going. He has been selling palm oil for 18 years.

This is his first loan with Turame. With the Kiva loan that he will obtain, he is going to grow his working capital and buy two jerrycans of palm oil to resell so as to earn more income.

In the years to come, he would like to build a nice house and send his children to school.
