Esha – Our Inspirational Marie
This last major release is code-named Esha K in recognition of Esha Omar Athman, a borrower at Fursa Leo in Mombasa, Kenya. Esha has been a client at Fursa Leo since July 26, 2011. In that time, she has taken out 3 business loans and has significantly expanded her business enabling her to uplift the living standards of her family through a new home, better meal, and sending her son to school.
Esha came to Fursa Leo, eight months pregnant seeking start-up capital for her failing ice cube business while her husband struggled to help them pay their bill and provide for their family. Through Fursa Leo’s mandatory financial literacy program and graduation through three larger loan cycles, Esha has brought her humble ice cube business from failure to prosperity.
