Esther is 30 years old. She is married to a local businessman and they have 2 children, ages 8 and 15. Her children are currently attending school and live at home.
Esther was fortunate to complete 9th grade, but she has been busy running her table where she sells cosmetics in the local market. With the loan proceeds, she will buy more cosmetics for her business. Fewer goods is her challenge. With a little money from her mother, Esther managed to establish this business 6 years ago, and learned by seeing other business people. She enjoys the flow of customers and the fast buying. Her plan is to move from a table business to a shop business and live better lives in the future.
