Joyce's story

Hello, Kiva community! Meet Joyce, a hardworking, dairy and crop farming mother in the heart of Litein. She has a small personal business. She is a devoted mom who loves cooking for her family and providing for their basic needs. However, she has not been enjoying her cooking duties due to her old, problematic stove (jiko). Her jiko emits a lot of smoke and now takes more than a tin of charcoal, which has become as costly as paraffin.

Joyce is requesting a loan to buy an eco-friendly jiko to enjoy cooking for her family and to save on the costs of charcoal and paraffin. Because it's eco-friendly, the jiko will also keep her from contracting any respiratory diseases that may be caused by the increased fumes emitted by her current stove. Kindly lend to her!
