Esther's story

Greetings from Vihiga!

Esther, 41 years old, is a mother of three school-going children and lives in the Vihiga area of Kenya. Her lovely children are her greatest motivators, and she perseveres because she wants to provide a better future for them.

Esther has always had a liking for farming. Her cows produce rich and creamy milk, which helps her support her family. She also practices corn farming but has not been making good profits because of poor and unpredictable climatic conditions in her area.

Esther is requesting a loan to buy cereals. She intends to buy varieties of cereals such as maize, beans, and millet to sell in the local market.

The market for cereals is never a problem because the demand is always high, and she plans to take advantage of that. Because of the good relationship Esther has with her neighbors, she plans to increase her market by using word-of-mouth to reach more customers and markets.

You can help this woman achieve her dreams with this loan, which will surely bring big profits. Light up a spirit this season.


This loan is special because:

It finances smallholder farmers to purchase dairy cows, chickens, cereals, farm inputs and farming equipment.
