Additional Information

More information about this loan

This loan will help a low-income family purchase environmentally-friendly goods and equipment, including solar products (lights, water pumps, heaters), biodigesters, energy-efficient light bulbs and gas stoves. Lacking electricity, many people in rural El Salvador are forced to use firewood for cooking and kerosene for lighting, expensive solutions that endanger their health and well-being. By funding this loan, you are providing access to greener, healthier alternatives.

This Kiva loan will be either be a cash laon or an in-kind loan.  An in-kind loan is used to provide borrowers with needed goods or services, as opposed to cash or financial credit.
