Conrad's story

Hello Kiva Community!

Meet Conrad, 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 through the electricity in his home. His family has been using kerosene lamps, despite the toxic fumes that put the family at risk of contracting respiratory diseases.

Conrad is kindly appealing for a loan to buy a solar lantern to provide adequate lighting, enabling his children to read better while at home and eventually to buy a digital television. With the lantern’s dual charging capability, his wife will also be able to efficiently charge her phone. Kindly consider lending to him.
