Israel's story

The sale of improved stoves has produced profits which enabled him to pay for his college education. He is grateful and wants this business to benefit other young men like him wanting to study while aiming to protect the environment. He wants to sell more stoves in order to raise awareness among people, especially young people. With this in mind, he is requesting this new loan from Kiva.
