but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!


A loan helped to expand her business by purchasing more garden equipment such as hoes and sprayers.


Esther's story

Esther is a 28-year-old entrepreneur who lives with her parents and siblings in the Mpika district in Zambia. Esther grows beans and maize (corn).

Esther is requesting a Kiva loan to expand her business by purchasing more garden equipment such as hoes and sprayers. She also plans to buy fertilizer and seed which will allow her to increase her yield and therefore, her profits!

She will use the profit she earns to help vulnerable people in her community and to reinvest into her business.

Esther will repay the "social interest" on her loan by volunteering three hours per week as an Early Childhood Education Guide, raising awareness among community members regarding the importance of early childhood education.
