Esther is a 48-year-old married woman. She has four children with ages ranging from 7 years to 18 years. She describes herself to be focused, social and a God-fearing woman. She operates a tailoring retail shop where she sells dresses. She has been involved in this business for 10 years. Her business is located within an urban area and her primary customers are residents from the environs. Sometimes, Esther sells rice to increase her business income.
Esther describes her biggest business challenge to be insufficient funds for improving the business. She will use the Kes 20,000 loan to buy fabric to make dresses to sell.
