La's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to pay for a solar home system.

La's story

La runs a grocery shop. She is living with her husband and two dependent children. Her husband gets up early in the morning every day to do farming, while she prepares her grocery shop.

She needs to stand by in the shop the whole day and needs to consume a lot of energy to run her business until nighttime; however, the car battery is not reliable. Sometimes the battery runs out without notice. She has no choice but to stay in pitch black for one day until morning. This disturbs not only her living lifestyle, but also her business.

Therefore, she is applying for a Kiva loan to buy a solar home system to supply her business’ energy usage and also her family’s usage. With a solar home system, she doesn’t have to be concerned about the power suddenly going off anymore.
