Esther's story

Esther is a married woman, who is 45 years old and lives in Suhum, near the city of Koforidua. She has two children currently in school.

Esther has been running her own provisions shop for the past 21 years, selling various items to those in the community. The challenge she is currently facing is inadequate stocks in the shop to meet the demands of her growing customer base. She is having trouble attracting customers because of her low inventory and her shelves looking empty.

Esther is thus requesting a loan from Advans and is hopeful that Kiva lenders will fund her loan. She intends to re-invest her profit into the business.
