Caridad Del Socorro
She buys cow’s milk and makes cream and curd from it at home and then sells it in the nearest town. She’s been doing this activity for a little more than three years and has been able to make improvements to her humble abode and to buy basic furnishings like beds and chairs for her children. She also takes advantage of the whey in that she uses it as feed for the pigs she raises to earn a little extra income.
The community she lives in doesn’t have electricity which is why she wants to get a loan in order to obtain a small solar system so she can have light, to charge her cell phone and to listen to the radio. She’d feel saver at night this way and her children would be able to study at night. She would be very grateful for the opportunity of getting this loan.
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.
