Esther is a married woman with children, all of whom attend school. She owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food for the family.
Esther operates a greengrocer's stall selling vegetables: she sells at the market to town dwellers and neighbors. She faces the challenge of the high cost of transportation to her place of operation. She dreams of expanding and establishing a vegetable wholesale business in the future.
With the Kshs 20,000 loan, Esther wants to purchase green vegetables, crates of tomatoes, and onions for resale. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
