Mucungwe Group's story

Férdinand is part of the Mucungwe group, and lives in Bubanza. He is 41 years old, and married to Suzanne. Together they have six children, aged between three and eighteen years old. Four of his children attend school.

Férdinand has been selling Primus beer for six years. This will be his first loan with the field partner Turame. He will use his Kiva loan to increase his business capital, and buy eight cases of Primus beer to resell. In this way, he hopes to increase his earnings.

In the coming years, Férdinand would like to buy some land to grow food produce, and see his children study.
