Silvester's story

Hello, Kiva Community! Meet Silvester, 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 through 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. Silvester is kindly appealing for a loan to buy a solar lantern to provide adequate lighting, enabling his children to read well while at home. With the lantern’s dual charging capability, his wife will also be able to efficiently charge her phone. Kindly consider lending to him.
