but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!


A loan helped to purchase solar home systems that will be financed for rural customers in Namibia.


Olusheno's story

In partnership with d.light design, Olusheno, a local social enterprise based in Namibia, aims to bridge the affordability gap by providing high-quality solar light to thousands of “off-grid” families on affordable installments. Olusheno has already provided sustainable lighting to over 13,000 households across the country and is working to fulfill the government’s dream of bringing reliable electricity to its one million off-grid citizens by 2030. Olusheno has successfully fundraised and repaid two loans to Kiva. This new loan will be used as working capital for Olusheno to purchase more solar home systems that will be sold in rural areas of Namibia. Your contribution will help thousands of people light up their lives for the first time!
