Gilbert's story

Hello, Kiva community!

Meet Gilbert, who is a crop and animal farmer, and a father eager to provide the very best for his family. He states that with his small income, he hasn’t been able to provide sufficient lighting with electricity in his home. His family has been using kerosene lamps, despite the toxic fumes that put them at risk of developing respiratory diseases.

Gilbert is kindly appealing for a loan to buy a solar lantern. The lantern would provide adequate lighting to enable his children to read better while at home and improve his family's health. With the lantern’s dual-charging capability, his wife will also be able to charge her phone.

Kindly consider lending to Gilbert!
