Twizigire Group's story

Apollinaire, age 35, is a widow who lives in Gitega. She's a member of Twizigire Group.

For the past ten years, she's been selling bananas and goats. She's seeking her third loan from Kiva's partner, Turame.

She will use her Kiva loan to bolster her working capital and buy a large quantity of bananas and lots of goats to resell, in order to increase her income.
