Esther's story

Esther is a happily married woman who has been blessed with children. She is a hardworking and entrepreneurial young lady who runs a restaurant to provide for her family. Her joy comes when she sees her customers flocking in to her small restaurant and she loves to see the smile on their faces when she comes to serve them.

Through the loan that she is seeking she will be able to buy foodstuffs for her business which will increase her revenues and benefit her young family greatly. Esther also engages in farming and her dream is to expand her farm.
