At the age of 22, he had to separate from them in order to perform military service. Two years later, thank God, Juan Jose returned alive and his father gave him some manzanas of land so that he could grow coffee and basic grains.
Now, little by little, Juan Jose took charge of his own affairs and by the time he married, he had a home to offer his wife. Then came the children and with great effort, Juan Jose advanced their lives, since he desired that they study and prepare themselves.
Conventional electrical energy has not come to this community. That's why Juan Jose is applying for a loan to purchase a small solar system and, thus, they can have lights in their home. His family is excited about the idea of having lights at night and being able to carry out other 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.
Important InformationThis Kiva loan will be used to provide borrowers with needed goods or services, as opposed to cash or financial credit.
