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


A loan helped to expand her business to other rural communities that lack access to financial services.


Esther's story

Esther is 36 years old. She is a single mother of two children whose ages are 12 and 15. She provides for her family financially through her work as a police officer.

Esther started her own Zoona business in order to earn more income to support her children as well as to benefit her community. Ether’s Zoona business provides financial services that would otherwise not be available to her community. Before she started her business, people would travel long distances in order to access banks or other financial institutions.

Esther is requesting a loan in order to expand her business to other rural communities that lack access to these financial services. This will allow her to grow her business, provide further financial support for her family and serve other communities that are in need of these services.
