Ester Annah's story

Ester is a 25-year-old married woman with two children. She lives in the Mt. Darwin District of Zimbabwe and owns a small stall at the local flea market where she sells jackets, shirts, and dresses. She sometimes travels around the community with a bag of clothes, marketing and selling to her neighbors. Ester inspires young women in her community as both a Camfed Learner Guide who teaches students about their well-being and as an entrepreneur. She started the business in 2013 when she saw an opportunity to provide for herself. She will use this Kiva loan to purchase jackets, panties, shirts, and shoes to increase her stock. An increase in income will enable her to support herself and improve her family’s well-being. She also hopes to help the underprivileged children in her community.
