Augustine is married and has children. He is a hard-working, enterprising person, who wants to move forward day by day. He and his family live in Likoni, in Coast province. Augustine has a grocery store, which he has had for four years.

Augustine is requesting a loan, which he will use to buy products for his store such as salt, sugar, rice, soft drinks, and snacks. This loan will enable him to give good service to his customers and get new customers, so that his store will be well-known in the area. It will also help him earn a good income, which he will use to support his family's household expenses. Augustine's dream is to have a mini-mart and look for alternatives for generating a good income in order to pay for his children's schooling and support his wife.
