A loan helped to pay for a home solar energy system.

Sarom's story

Living in a farming community for generations, Sarom has a positive view of his family's future. Sarom wants to expand his farming land to be a bigger farm for better business. With the help of his wife and support from his children, Sarom never loses hope and is willing to work hard.

He wants to get up early in the morning and stay up late to spend more time on work. However, it is a challenge for him because his house doesn’t have enough energy to generate light. The house is not connected to the power grid. He has to get up when the sun rises high enough to see things clearly and go back home early before the road is too dark.

As a result, he decided to apply for a KIVA loan to buy a home solar energy system from Kamworks. He believes he will have enough energy for his family's usage and also to improve his working hours.
