Magara Group's story

Vincent is a member of the Magara group and lives in Bujumbura. He is 41 years old and is married to Caritas. Together, they have four children between the ages of 7 and 15. Three of them go to school. He has two dependent children who go to school who are members of the extended family.

He has been selling beignets for 14 years. This is his first loan with Turame. With the Kiva loan, he will increase his capital and buy a lot of flour (8 sacks) so that he can have a lot of beignets that he can resell to earn more.

In the next few years, he would like to buy a motorbike and see his children finish their schooling.
