A loan of $1,950 helped a member to buy six pagnes to resell.

Ruhembe Group's story

Moise is part of the Ruhembe group and lives in Cibitoke. He is 32 years old and married to Francine, a farmer. Together, they have one child who is 9 months old.

He is a tailor and has been selling pagnes (traditional wrap arounds) for seven years.

This is his first loan with Turame. With the Kiva loan he receives, he will increase his capital and buy six pagnes to resell in order to earn more.

In the next few years, he would like to have a fabric store, sell fish, and see his children study.
