Teresa's story

Hello, Kiva community!

Meet Teresa, who is a crop and animal farmer, as well as 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 the family at risk of contracting respiratory diseases.

Teresa is 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, her husband will also be able to charge his phone efficiently. Kindly consider lending to her.
