Esther is married with one child. She was forced to drop out of school to take care of her youngest sister when her mother passed away. With her sister’s upbringing and education falling on her at such an early age, she sought for an income generating activity. She joined a women’s group and received basic business training courses that WEEC provided for its members.

 In year 2003 Esther received her first loan of USD 60 to start a small business. She started a fruits business. She put her stall near Hardy supermarket so as to target those who want to buy fresh fruit other of the supermarket. The fruit business is doing well and has enabled her to educate her sister up to secondary level. Esther believes that discipline and hard work is the core of any business success. To this, she is the discipline mistress in her group. Esther’s dream is to expand her business to include cereals. She has started a special project of keeping local chicken and they are in high demand compared to broilers. Each local chicken costs USD 4.
