Her source of income to support her family is growing basic grains, having a few heads of cattle, and raising pigs.
The community where she lives does not have electricity. She wishes to have light in her house in order to be able to help her children with their homework at night. This is because they both work during the daytime. Therefore, she is requesting the loan to be able to buy a solar panel and improve her family’s quality of life.
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.
