Augustin's story

Augustin is a 47-year-old, married man with children.

He has sold doughnuts in a neighbourhood of the capital city for five years. His expertise in his trade, and his good prices, have allowed him to build up and retain an ever-growing clientele. This increasing demand, and his lack of capital, have led Augustin to request this loan. He will use his loan to buy sacks of flour and a barrel of oil. The earnings that Augustin makes will be reinvested in his business, and some will be saved to pay for his children's schooling.
