Rafael De Jesus
Rafael got married when he was 18 and has four children from this marriage. Now his children are grown up and some have even given him grandchildren.
He prepares the land so that he can generate an income to pay for household expenses.
His community does not have electricity, so he would like to improve his family's standard of living by asking for a loan to be able to install it in his home.
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.
