Esther's story

Esther is a single woman who lives in a rental house that neither has electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and water bills.

She operates a retail shop, selling soft drinks, rice and maize flour. She sells to local neighbours and passersby. Esther faces a major challenge of seasonality and high cost of transportation in his business. She hopes to take a bigger Kiva loan to expand her business in the future.

With the Kshs 30,000 she wants to purchase bundles of maize flour, wheat flour, sugar and soft drinks for sale. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to improve her business.
