Ester's story

Ester is single and the mother of 2 children who attend School, lives in her own house with her children and doesn't support anyone else. She's a trader and owns her own business selling food products. With this loan she plans to buy products (rice, peanuts, oil, beans and others) to increase the quantity of her stock. In future she hopes to grow her business to improve her family's living conditions. To this end, she commits to duly paying off the loan in order to solicit further loans from Hluvuku. Her challenge is the high cost of living.
