P2P lending across the international wealth divide.

We are pioneering the first online microcredit community to connect lenders worldwide with women & teen entrepreneurs & borrowers in Burundi, because access to capital is the number one reason businesses never take root.

The Innovation

People in Burundi support their families with their own small businesses. They need loans in order to grow - but local banks charge exorbitant interest rates.

We connect lenders and borrowers directly, resulting in fairly priced loans that encourage growth.

How It Works

Borrowers Apply

A borrower creates a Kugurana account and posts a loan request to help fund his/her business.

Lenders Choose

A lender selects an available loan and bids to provide all or part of the funding.

Specify the Interest

Lenders propose their own interest rate for the funds that they offer to loan.

Direct Payment

100% of the lender's loan is disbursed directly to the borrower's business.

Communicate Directly

Lenders and borrowers can stay in touch on the impact of the loan.

Do It Again

Loans are repaid in regular installments and can be reinvested immediately.
