Mubigazi Group's story

Célestin is a member of the Mubigazi group and lives in Bubanza. He is 30 years old and married to Esperance, a farmer. The couple have 4 children together, aged between 1 and 7, one of whom attends school. He is raising 4 other members (also students) of his extended family. He has been running a shop (selling items like batteries, sugar, candles and soap) for 5 years. This is his first loan from Turame. His Kiva-sponsored loan will increase his working capital and allow him to buy a lot of items for resale in his shop (batteries, sugar, candles, soap, etc.), so that he can earn more money. In the coming years, he would like to start importing his products from Uganda and to see his children get an education.
