Esther's story

Esther is a single mother of three children, one of whom goes to school. She takes care of additional family members (her cousin, sisters, and brother) too.

She is aspiring to become a wholesaler and to educate her children up to university. She resides at her own house and the family has access to electricity and piped water.
