Egda is 32 years old and was born in the community of Manzano. She studied through second grade in primary school, but it became difficult to go to school because she helped her mother with work at home. Today she has her own family and is married to a young man from the area. Together they have three children. The children go to school in the community and Egda comments that she wants them to get ahead and learn since she did not have the opportunity to do that. Currently she is a member of the small communal bank that was formed by leaders of her community. She works raising shrimp, which in addition to being additional income also does not demand a lot of time away from her responsibilities at home. Her husband works growing corn and thus both parents work and support the family. In the community they do not have electrical power, and for that reason she wants to use this credit to purchase a solar system for her home. In that way her children will be able to do their homework, play, and complete other family activities.

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