"Augustina Boadiwaa is 35 years old; she is single and a very staunch Christian. She lives at Nkawkaw in the eastern region of Ghana with her family. She lives with her extended family in the community. She is a trader who trades in cola nuts. Cola nuts are mostly used by the northerners in Ghana. Most people chew them for the flavor. She treks to the villages to buy bulk supplies of cola nuts and retails them to her customers. Cola nuts have a big market share in Ghana and have created lots of opportunity for Ghana women. She is requesting the loan amount to buy cola nuts, especially their season is approaching. Augustina belongs to a village bank called ‘Anigye’ which means ‘Happiness’."
Augustina only hads 29 more days to raise money for her business. She needs $500 more.
