Bizoza Group's story

Rebecca, age 29, lives in Gitega. She's a member of Bizoza Group. She's married to Ernest, a mason, and they have six children together, aged 3 to 14.

For one year, she's been selling tapioca. This is her fourth loan with Turame. With this Kiva loan, she will bolster her working capital and buy a large amount of tapioca to resell, in order to increase her income.

In the forthcoming years, she would like to see her children study.
