Esther's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to help service her towing and recovery vehicles.

Esther's story

Esther is happily married and is blessed with a son.

She runs a business of towing and recovery with the help of her tow vehicles.

She is humbly requesting a loan that will enable her to repair her vehicles so that she can continue with her work. She will be able to pay back her loan with the help of the profits she makes.

The major challenge she faces is capital whenever her vehicles break down but her loan will enable her to solve this problem.

Her dream is to grow her business and buy more towing and recovery vehicles.
