Esther's story

Esther is a 25-year-old entrepreneur who lives with her mother in Mbala District in Zambia. She is passionate about telling her community about the importance of education. Esther runs a preschool. She is requesting a Kiva loan to expand her business by buying equipment for her preschool such as baby mattresses, chairs and tables. She plans to use the profit she earns to support her household’s basic needs.

Esther will repay the ‘social interest’ on her loan by volunteering three hours per week as a Camfed Learner Guide, facilitating classes from Camfed’s ‘My Better World’ program with students at her local secondary school, helping to build their self-esteem and motivating them to remain in school.
