More information about this loan
This WANA Solutions loan is designed to help households and small businesses convert from biomass energy to liquefied petroleum gas (LPG). Despite LPG being a cleaner and safer alternative to traditional forms of energy, all too often those who would most benefit from it are unable to afford the upfront necessary equipment costs (e.g. cylinders, piping, stoves). By funding this loan, you are helping a customer to access a cleaner, safer and cheaper fuel source for their business or their family.
This Kiva loan will be used to provide borrowers with needed goods or services, as opposed to cash or financial credit
