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

A loan helped to maintain a stock of solar lights and cell phone chargers, which will then be sold to local retail shops and sales agents.

Ndeyapo's story

Ndeyapo grew up in Ogongo, Namibia, where she completed high school and then continued her education at the Valombala Vocational Training Centre, studying Information Communication Technology. Before joining the Elephant Energy team, Ndeyapo worked as a Secretary at Princess Fashion Design, an Administrator at the National Customer Service Marketing and a Bookkeeper at National Business Management Network. In April 2015, she joined Elephant Energy where she is now the Regional Sales Manager for the Oshana, Omusati and Kunene Regions. In her work with Elephant Energy, Ndeyapo has secured sales agents in some of the most rural villages in northwestern Namibia and is working with the regional council to develop a new market for the sale of goods!

This loan will help Ndeyapo to secure more products for sale in her region by helping to address the need for cash on hand to place orders. Additionally, the loan will enable larger volume product orders, reducing the lights' per unit costs and ultimately allowing Ndeyapo to pass lower costs on to those in need of small scale solar lighting products.
