Grace is a successful businesswoman who is enabling her family and community to thrive. But this wasn’t always the case. Growing up, Grace didn’t go to school and from a young age she started small businesses in order to make money and survive.
Six years ago she received financial training and a business loan from Opportunity International. Grace used this to start a pig business and, with the profits, she then invested in a beauty salon. Both businesses are now flourishing. The salon is doing so well that Esther has employed two staff members and hopes to employ more. “My life has changed. I am successful and happy. I have built a house and am saving. I feel secure for me and my family.”
