Sophia's story

Hello, Kiva community! Get to know Sophia, 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 in her home using electricity. Sophia's family has been using kerosene lamps despite the toxic fumes that put the family at risk of contracting respiratory diseases.

Sophia is requesting a loan to buy a solar lantern to provide adequate lighting at her home. She will use her loan to enable her children to read well at home. With the lantern’s dual-charging capability, the family will also be able to charge other devices. Kindly consider lending to Sophia.
