Noel is a very-low-income farmer living with his large family of 6 members in a remote house without access to the traditional electrification. They had to spend on buying candles they used to light at home by night before the installation of a Small Solar Home System, so-called SSHS, in their house. This SSHS gives them additional hours of lighting, allows savings in energy elements and facilitates Noel to advance in his work.
Funding is asked for financing 53% of the cost of that SSHS, which will be paid back with the monthly fee that this farmer pays for maintenance services during the first year of operation.

About Housing Loans

Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes. Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
