ACCIONA Microenergia Mexico (AMM) is a non-profit organization founded by Fundacion ACCIONA Microenergia (FUNDAME), which is its reference partner. FUNDAME is the corporate foundation of one of the leading Spanish companies in the renewable energies and infrastructure sector.
FUNDAME, established in 2008, operates through AMM to provide basic services such as energy, water, and infrastructure in a sustainable way to isolated communities living in rural areas of Mexico.
A unique lending approach:
AMM offers quality solar systems to isolated communities in Mexico, and provides them with the electricity they need in order to light their homes. Funding of loans on Kiva allows AMM to buy solar systems for low-income households in those communities. Each community will pay a monthly maintenance fee that will allow AMM to pay back the loan. There is 0% interest on that 12-month loan. Photovoltaic systems permit families to have four hours of quality light per day, and eliminate the danger of using kerosene lamps. With Kiva’s support, AMM will be able to reach more isolated communities and provide them with electricity.
