A loan of $125 helped to pay for the most efficient and affordable cooking gas package.

Charles's story

Charles is a resident of Entebbe municipality; he is 35 years old and a teacher by profession. He is married with one child. Charles says that they use charcoal for their cooking needs, but he realized that since there was an increase in the cost of charcoal, they have tried to reduce the amount of beans they prepare at home. He feels his child has been missing some food proteins they eat.

Charles had previously known about liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) as an efficient and affordable cooking energy. However, his challenge had been the initial cost, which seems to be high.

Charles is pleased to get a Kiva loan, which will help him access a complete package of cooking gas to enable him to prepare a balanced diet for his family.
