Gladys is 21 years old and now lives with her husband with whom she was married at the age of 18. They have a 2 year old child together. Before this she used to live with her parents in a nearby community where she attended primary and secondary school. With her husband she has a property with a number of livestock. The majority of the cows they milk and with this cow's milk they make curd to sell. Furthermore, she plants beans. In partnership with some neighbours she also plants vegetables such as pumpkins and passion fruit, giving her other forms of income. She is requesting a loan to buy solar panels so that she can have electricity at home, since currently her community is not connected to the conventional electricity network.

Additional Information

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 Information

This Kiva loan will be used to provide borrowers with needed goods or services, as opposed to cash or financial credit.
