A loan of $175 helped to pay for a modern and clean cooking energy from Liquefied Petroleum Gas.

Valentina's story

Valentina is a newly married mother of a one year old. She is a nurse by profession and as a wedded wife, she planned together with her husband to buy Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG). Valentina and husband decided to adapt to a new and modern energy because it is clean, affordable and efficient. They did not wish to continue using dirty and expensive energy in their new home because they were aware of what charcoal and kerosene does in a house and to people’s health.

When they moved into their newly built home, they were not able to pay for LPG because of the initial cost involved. With the Kiva loan, they are convinced that their dream has come true and they are going to save on the cost of cooking and reduce the smoke and soot that comes with charcoal and kerosene, respectively.

Without her Kiva loan, Valentina wouldn’t have been able to buy LPG because they used all the money they had and it would have taken them a long time to acquire the product.
