A loan helped to buy a solar lantern.


Emmanuel's story

Hello Kiva Community. Meet Emmanuel (pictured in his house above), who is a crop and animal farmer and a father eager to provide the very best for his family. He states that with his small income, he hasn’t been able to provide sufficient electric lighting in his home. His family has been using kerosene lamps, despite the toxic fumes that put the family at risk of contracting respiratory diseases. Emmanuel is kindly appealing for a loan to buy a solar lantern to provide adequate lighting, enabling his children to read comfortably while at home. With the lantern’s dual charging capability, his wife will also be able to efficiently charge her phone. Kindly consider lending to him.


This loan is special because:

It aims to reduce energy costs for small-scale farmers.
