Esther Wanjiru
Esther is a 53 year old widow. She has 5 children: 2 sons and 3 daughters. She lives at Kangemi which is densely populated.

Esther owns many rental houses. She has been in this business for a long time and, through this work, she has been able to provide for herself and her children. She has rental houses in Kangemi near the highway. This is a strategic location as many people prefer living near the highway where there is easy access to roads.

She has been a member of KADET for some time now and this is her fourth loan. She was introduced to KADET by one of the members. She has no previous credit history. The loan she has applied for will be used to connect electricity to her rental houses and to pay school fees for one of her sons.

Esther wants to buy another plot and build more rental houses away from her in-laws who keep harassing her, especially after her husband died.
