Augusta's Group's story

Augusta's group is a group of five trading women who are living in the same community. They sell provisions such as perming creams, body pomade, soap, rice, cassava, yams, cutlery sets, fish, cooking oil, and plantains.

Augusta is a 53-year-old single mother with three adult children. She sells soap, rice, plantains, yams, and vegetables. She buys her goods from the market in Accra-Ghana. She has been in this business for nine years, and she uses the profits to keep her house and to reinvest in her business.

This is Augusta's sixth loan cycle with ID-Ghana and her second with KIVA.

Her group will need a total amount of 3,500 GHS to buy enough goods to sell to customers.
