Sporit Cornel's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy a solar home system to light his house and a solar powered TV as a source of information.

Sporit Cornel's story

Sporit's greatest concern is making sure that his 4 children can grow up under the best circumstances possible in rural Tanzania. He has decided to buy a solar home system and a solar powered TV set to increase his and his family's standard of living.

One thing that has bothered him for a long time is the fact that his children have severe problems doing their homework after dusk. The reason for that is the dim light and the toxic gases of kerosene lamps. Thus, he is determined to provide them with bright and clean solar light. With the solar home system and solar TV set, his house now has 10 bulbs, which makes their time schedule and daily living situation better and more flexible.

Additionally, the solar powered TV is one of the only reliable sources of information about current worldwide events and political developments in his village and Tanzania. The TV set therefore brings political and social education to his family and to his neighbors.
