Juan Pastor
Juan is 34 years old. He comments that he was 6 months old when his family left Nicaragua to live elsewhere. At this time there was a recruitment going on for the war and other negative factors. Ten years later they returned and re-established themselves in the community of Guapinol. He started school here and went up to his second year of Secondary school. Then he decided to enter into a Christian ministry. Today he is the minister of the Zareth Church in the Mina el Limón district. There are 40 members in the congregation.

Four years ago he got married and has a two year old son. He lives in the parsonage. As there is no electricity in the community he would like a loan to buy a solar system and install it in the pastoral house. He could also use it to transfer light to the church and have evening meetings and services for his members.

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.
