Jackline's story

Hello, Kiva Community!

Meet Jackline, who is a crop and animal farmer and a single 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 through the electricity in her home.

Her family has been using kerosene lamps, despite the toxic fumes that put the family at risk of contracting respiratory diseases. Jackline is kindly appealing for a loan to buy a solar lantern to provide adequate lighting to enable her children to read well while at home. With the lantern’s dual-charging capability, she will also be able to efficiently charge her phone. Kindly consider lending to her.
