Palmis Eneji S.a's story
Watch this loan's video profile In Haiti, 93% of households depend on charcoal for cooking and 75% have no access to grid electricity. PALMIS Enèji is a social business initiated by French NGO Entrepreneurs du Monde. It provides vulnerable households suffering from energy poverty with clean, modern and affordable cooking and lighing solutions. PE's range of solar lights, solar home systems and clean cookstoves have been designed to maximize health, economic and social impacts for users: less noxious emissions inhalated by women and their children while cooking, less money spent on charcoal and kerosene, less trees cut to produce charcoal, brighter and more comfortable homes. More than 12,000 households have already benefited from these products since 2013. PALMIS Enèji partners with local microentrepreneurs such as Marie-Waseline (picture) in order to distribute its products in the poorest communities of Haiti. Its network of franchised entrepreneurs brings together more than 50 resellers who generate an extra income from the sale of solar lights and improved cookstoves. In order to scale-up its activities and support more entrepreneurs such as Marie-Waseline, PALMIS Enèji is seeking 49,950 USD in working capital, which will be used to import and stock clean energy products to meet customer demand.
