A loan helped to buy an eco-friendly jiko, which will allow her to enjoy cooking for her family.
Meet Anna a hardworking dairy and crop-farming mother living in the heart of Eldoret. Anna 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 (known as a jiko). Her jiko emits a lot of smoke and now takes more than a tin of charcoal, which, like paraffin, has become quite costly. Anna is requesting a loan to buy an eco-friendly jiko, which will allow her to enjoy cooking for her family again and 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 fumes emitted by her current stove. Kindly lend to her!
