Nicolas Leonidas
Nicolas lives in the Community of San Remigio. He is married and has two children and says that he began working at different activities from an early age; that is whatever he could find, and today everything he learned has helped him because he didn’t have the opportunity to attend school as he would have liked. At that time it was more difficult and he had less access because he needed to help his parents. Today his life is different and he is a partner in the “Fountain of Life” co-op that he and some co-workers formed. He has a home of his own and two plots of land that are the fruits of his labor. His children attend school and his wife is a home maker. He wants to improve his family’s living conditions and wants to have electricity in his home, but the plan to bring it to his community is on hold. He is asking for a loan to buy a solar system that will be very helpful.

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.
