Grace
Grace is a Kiva borrower. She describes herself as very persistent. She operates a green grocery to earn a living. She will use the 20,000 KES loan on labor costs for digging a bore-hole, which will benefit 6 family members and over 50 community members. They face a lack of enough water. With the bore-hole they will be able to access clean water and will be able to farm. Grace hopes that in the future, she will be able to practice large scale farming. This is her fifth loan with SMEP DTM. Her previous loans were repaid successfully.

Additional Information

More information about this loan

This loan is a part of SMEP's loan program to promote clean drinking water in partnership with Water.org. Called WASH (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene), this program offers three loan products:

1)      Loans designed to increase access to water. This includes financing for water tanks, water connections, water kiosks, pumps, filters, dispensers and catchment systems.

2)      Loans for sanitation improvements. This includes financing for the construction of bathrooms, toilets, septic tanks, soak pits, pit latrines, disposal units and incinerators.

3)      Loans for the drilling and construction of boreholes, shallow wells and water towers. This also includes the establishment and improvement of water treatment plants and chemicals.

WASH loan products carry greater risk than typical Kiva loans because they are used to fund non-income generating assets (in most cases), and therefore will need to be repaid with other sources of income. This income may already be contingent on other loans held by loan recipients.
