Philemona's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy a solar lantern.

Philemona's story

Philemona ─ a crop and animal farmer, and a mother eager to provide the very best for her family ─ says with her small income, she hasn’t been able to provide sufficient lighting with the electricity in her home. Her family has been using kerosene lamps, despite toxic fumes putting the family at risk of contracting respiratory diseases.

She's kindly appealing for a loan to buy a solar lantern to provide adequate lighting, enabling her children to read well at home. With the lantern’s dual charging capability, Philemona's husband will also be able to efficiently charge his phone. Kindly consider lending to her.
