Auja Group's story

Magdalene, age 30, is the leader of this group of entrepreneurs. She makes her living by selling palm oil, the country’s most popular cooking oil. She has been engaged in this business for the past 12 years. She and her husband live in the city of Bo with their two children, both of whom attend primary school.

This is the first loan that Magdalene and her group members have applied for from SMT and Kiva lenders. With the help of this loan, they will be able to expand their individual businesses, make more sales, and consequently improve their families' living conditions.

Magdalene will use her share of the loan to expand her business by purchasing gallons of palm oil to add to her current stock.
