Augustine's story

Augustine is a widely-known, skilled and seasoned entrepreneur with years of experience to his name. He is a daring entrepreneur having initially started the business in South Sudan before moving back to Kenya due to the clashes in Darfur.

With a measly starting capital, Augustine’s expertise has seen him tremendously revamp and grow the business over the past few years. His rich understanding of the business environment within Kakuma continues to give him an edge over the rest of the boutiques around the area.

Augustine largely attributes the growth experienced to the initial loan he received from AEC as evidenced by his employing one full-time and one casual employee to help out in the operations. He is looking to employ even more as the business expands further.

A loan to Augustine will see him stock the store with a variety of new items which he currently does not stock in a bid to meet the community’s growing needs and demand.
