Beatrice's story

Hello, Kiva Community!

Meet Beatrice, a crop and animal farmer, and a mother eager to provide the very best for her family. She states that, with her small income, she hasn’t been able to provide sufficient lighting through the electricity in her home. Her family has been using kerosene lamps, despite the toxic fumes that put them at risk of contracting respiratory diseases.

Beatrice is kindly requesting a loan to buy a solar lantern in order to provide adequate lighting, enabling her children to easily read while at home. With the lantern’s dual charging capability, her husband will also be able to efficiently charge his phone.

Kindly consider lending to her.
