Duterintambwe I Group's story

Christophe, age 30, is part of Duterintambwe I Group and lives in Gitega. He is married to Annociate, a cultivator. They have two children together, age 14 and 22.

Christophe has been selling eucalyptus for eight years. He is seeking his thirteenth loan from Turame. With this Kiva's loan, he will bolster his working capital and buy a large eucalyptus plantation, in order to sell a lot of eucalyptus and increase his income.

In the forthcoming years, he would like to see his children study and buy some land lots.
