Esther's story

Hello, lenders. Meet Esther, an enterprising woman who hails from a remote village in the Limuru region of Kenya.

Esther has been in the business of farming for the last six years and she says farming is the best activity she has ever engaged in. She is hard working and very enterprising. Esther, 59 years of age, enjoys farming as a way of giving her family a healthy lifestyle.

The Limuru region has good climatic conditions for farming. Farmers like Esther engage in growing some varieties of vegetables and rearing of livestock. Esther’s main sources of income include milk and vegetables. However, she engages in some personal businesses to enable her to supplement her meager income.

Esther is borrowing this loan to pay for installation of a complete drip irrigation kit. An irrigation system will ensure that Esther continually optimizes her use of water and that her crops benefit from the constant water supply. Her output will therefore increase as will her income.

She thanks her lenders in advance.
