These loans are designed for women who live in communities that do not have electricity, and where the government does not plan to install electricity for at least five years. This financing enables them to purchase solar panels ranging from 36 to 75 watts. COMIXMUL has partnered with an established solar company in Honduras to install the panels and provide maintenance when required. The panels themselves are guaranteed for 25 years. Historically, COMIXMUL has had significant demand for this product that it has been unable to meet. Thanks to Kiva, COMIXMUL will be able to expand access to solar technology to more borrowers.
