Mary's story

Hello, Kiva Community! Meet Mary, a hardworking, dairy and crop-farming mother in the heart of Bungoma. She has a small personal business. She is a devoted mum who loves cooking for her family and providing for their basic needs. However, she has not been enjoying her cooking duties, due to her old, problematic jiko (stove). Her jiko emits a lot of smoke and now takes more than a tin of charcoal, which has become quite costly, as has paraffin.

Mary is requesting a loan to buy an eco-friendly jiko to enjoy cooking for her family and save on the costs of charcoal and paraffin. Because it's eco-friendly, the jiko will also keep her from contracting any respiratory diseases that may be caused by the increased fumes emitted by her current stove. Kindly lend to her!
