Esther is 45 years old, married and has five children. From a very young age she helped her mother in the rearing of chicken, until she formed her own family. Thanks to the experience she acquired she was able to start her own poultry business, which she says is doing well. She has had this business for the past seven years and everything she does is to support her children.
The loan Esther is requesting from Yehu is to buy more chicks and chicken feed. She hopes to remain in business and make the income needed to improve her quality of life. Her aim is to save money to enable her children to have an education.
