A loan helped to buy more charcoal for her business.

Esther's story

Greetings from Rwanda! This is Esther, a 30-year-old entrepreneur who sells charcoal in her community. She is married with two children aged between three and five years old.

Esther requested a loan for the purpose of increasing her business by buying more charcoal to meet customer demand in her community. With the profit from the loan, she would like to expand her business and increase her savings.

Esther thanks you for your support.
