Paul's story

Hello Kiva Community!

Meet Paul, who is a crop, vegetable (kale) 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.

Paul is kindly appealing for a loan to buy a solar water pump and a solar lantern that will enable him to provide adequate lighting, enabling his children to read well while at home.

Paul has planted vegetables on his farm and he experiences the challenges of irrigating his vegetables because of unpredictable weather and lack of rainfall but through the loan he will say good bye to relying on rainfall because the solar powered water pump will irrigate his vegetable farm. He will also say bye to power bills because he will be using the solar lantern for lighting.

With the lantern’s dual charging capability, his wife will also be able to efficiently charge her phone. Kindly consider lending to him.
