Esther's story

Esther is a 52-year-old married woman. She has three children. She describes herself to be honest and optimistic.

She operates a new retail business where she sells fish. Her business is located in a good area, and her primary customers are locals from Changamwe coastal Kenya. She describes her biggest business challenge to be inadequate working capital.

She will use the KES 50,000 loan to purchase additional stock of fish and buy more items for frying fish.

Her business goal is to have a wholesale business within five years. She hopes that in the future, she will be financially stable. This is her second loan with SMEP Microfinance Bank. The previous loan was repaid successfully. She will use the anticipated profits to pay school fees.
