Horimbere Group's story

Emmanuel is a member of the Horimbere group and lives in Bujumbura. He is 57 years old and is marred to Jeanne, a merchant. Together they have seven children, between seven and 20 years old. All the children go to school. Emmanuel works selling various products--milk, lemonade, chemical fertilizers. He has been doing this for nine years. This is his eighth loan with Turame. With this Kiva-financed loan, he is going to increase his capital to buy a large quantity of milk, chemical fertilizer, and lemonade, which he will resell to earn more. In the coming years, Emmanuel would like to build a fence around his land and see his children [continue to] go to school.
