Augusta H.


A loan of $250 helped to buy more stock, such as rubber and wood, for her business.


Augusta H.'s story

This is 49-year-old Augusta from Torkpoi Town in Bo, Sierra Leone. She is married with four children, between the ages of nine and 24. Three of her children currently attend school.

Augusta sells rubber and wood from her house and works seven hours a day, five days a week at her business. She started her business to improve herself and to educate her children. She requested the loan to buy more stock, such as rubber and wood, for her business. She says that transportation is high, and the prices of wood and rubber rise and fall, making her business more unpredictable.

The client wants to use the proceeds of her business to feed her family and pay her children’s school fees. She thanks you for helping her business improve.
