Veronica's story

Hello Kiva Community!

Veronica is a mother of six children who is very determined to give her family a solid reputation. She is a crop and animal farmer from Matuu, home to some of the world’s most beautiful sculptures.

Veronica is seeking a loan to buy a solar-powered television set that she will use to watch informative programs and also watch news happening around the world. Most of the houses in her remote area don’t have electricity, and she will not need it because the television she is getting through the loan is solar-powered.

Kindly consider her request.
