A loan of $175 helped to pay for an efficient and clean cooking gas package.


Deborah's story

Deborah is a 32-year-old mother of two. She is single and works in a salon as a hairdresser. At home she uses charcoal as their main energy for cooking food. But she does acknowledge that charcoal takes a long time to light and during morning hours, it is always a problem because if she wakes up late it means she won't have breakfast. She is now seeking a loan from Kiva to enable her to buy a cooking gas package (Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG). She is aware that it is not only clean but it is also efficient as it cooks food quicker than charcoal and firewood. Deborah says that she will now be able to prepare breakfast for her children and also on her return, she will make sure that they eat before going to bed.
