Dutambutsanye Group's story

Marc is a member of the Dutambutsanye Group. He is 40 years old and lives in Bujumbura. He is married to Apolline, a farmer, with whom he has had five children between the ages of one and 18. Four of them are currently receiving an education. In addition to this, his nephew is also under the family's care.

Marc has been selling beer and lemonade out of his café for the past 10 years.

This is his first loan with Turame. With this Kiva loan, his working capital will be increased and he will purchase several cases of beer and lemonade, which he will resell at a profit.

In the coming years, he would like to purchase a plot of land and a car to get about in. He would also like to see that his children receive a good education.
