Eugenia has lived in this community, where there is no electricity, her whole life. In order to light up the house at night, they use candles and battery-powered light bulbs. Her hope is to have a solar panel to light her house and have for emergency situations at night. With this loan she will get a 100 watt solar home system.
"When my brother died we had to spend a lot of money to rent a generator to have light during the night. At that moment we realized how sad and hard it is to not have electricity during times of emergency."
More information about this loan
TECNOSOL is a for-profit renewable energy company that provides electricity and solar powered products to families living off the grid in Nicaragua. It enables households to generate their own energy and replace toxic and expensive sources of light and heat like kerosene, diesel and wood.
Many of TECNOSOL's clients cannot afford the high upfront costs of buying solar products. Kiva loans help these households purchase clean energy products.
Solar home systems are much more than a solar lamp and can provide users with life changing amounts of power: enough power to run multiple lights, home appliances, radios, and TVs. These systems are modular, enabling clients to add solar panels and batteries to meet their increasing energy demands.
Important InformationThis Kiva loan will be used to provide borrowers with needed goods or services, as opposed to cash or financial credit.
