Beatrice's story

Hello Kiva Community!

Meet Beatrice (ever smiling), who is a crop farmer, and a mother who is eager to provide the very best for her family. Beatrice is kindly appealing for a loan to buy a solar powered television. The solar television will enable her children to watch educational programs and also she will be able to watch news happening all over the world.

Beatrice will also have low maintenance cost because the television does not use electricity so she will not incur any cost in paying electricity. Kindly lend to this mom and keep her smile.
