A loan of $125 helped to pay for a more efficient cooking gas package.

Joyce's story

Joyce cooks her food with charcoal because she did not have any other option. She says that other modern energies are only used by the rich people. She had never thought of acquiring any modern energy because it is so expensive.

Today Joyce is seeking a Kiva loan to enable her to acquire a liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) stove, as it will enable her to prepare meals quickly and on time.

Charcoal has become expensive, and she hopes to use it only for preparing beans, but she now hopes to use LPG during weekdays and charcoal for the weekend.
