Hayda Isabel
Hayda is 58 years old, and is from the community of Punta Ñata. Here she lived with her family until she grew up and met the father of her six children. She separated from her husband several years ago, and so has to work very hard to provide for her younger children, who are still dependent on her. She depends on agricultural work; for example she fattens pigs to sell them. In this way she makes enough to cover her family's basic needs. In her community they still live in the dark, as mains electric power has not arrived there. For this reason she is requesting a loan in order to buy a solar power system for her home.

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.
