Augustine, age 40, has been involved in the sale of bagged rice for the past six years. He started this business by selling on a tabletop at the market with a little money that he received from his father. He lives in the Ganta area with his wife, who runs her own business, and their three children. The youngest is 6 years old and the eldest is 13. All three live at home and attend school.
Augustine's primary obstacle is that his shop needs essential renovations. He is requesting a loan in order to purchase more bagged rice to offer for sale and to renovate his shop.
His goal is to build a house for his family and to secure the education of his children.
