Esther's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy more sacks of rice, maize, green gram and dolichos (njahi) to boost her business.

Esther's story

Esther is happily married and has been blessed with three children. Together with her loving husband they assist each other in meeting the family's expenses. She is able to provide for her family through the cereals business she runs in which she is seeking a loan to enable her to add stock to her business. This will greatly benefit her business and she will use her profits to pay back the loan you will assist her with. This will improve her family's living standards.

Her main challenge has been lack of enough stock to sustain her demand, as maize is a staple crop in Kenya. Her dream is to grow her business and be able to supply institutions such as churches and schools with cereals.
