More information about this loan
Kiva funding will be used to help local organizations buy improved cookstoves in Uganda. These organizations include savings and loan institutions and community-based groups that will distribute cookstoves to rural households to help them save on energy costs and reduce indoor pollution from cooking fires. To build in sufficient time for UpEnergy to import products from abroad, all Kiva loans will likely have terms of four months to a year. Exact loan terms will vary based on product providers.
This Kiva loan will be used to provide borrowers with needed goods or services, as opposed to cash or financial credit.
