Stella's story

Hello Kiva Community! Meet Stella, a crop and animal farmer. She is also a mother who is eager to provide the best for her family. With her small income, Stella says that she has not 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.

Stella is kindly appealing for a loan to buy a solar lantern in order to provide adequate lighting. This will enable her children to read well 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.
