Rugenge Group's story

Israel is a member of the Rugenge group. He lives in Bujumbura. He is 43 years old and married to Jeanine, a farmer. They have six children ranging from three to 17 years of age, three of whom are in school.

Israel has been running a basic goods store (beans, rice, soap etc) for one year. This is his first loan from Turame. With the Kiva loan, he will bolster his capital and buy a large quantity of beans, rice, soap etc for resale, in order to earn more. In the years to come, he would like to open a second store and see his children receive an education.
