Elizabeth's story

Elizabeth is excited to have the opportunity to post another loan through Kiva. With the help of her last loan, Elizabeth was able to purchase more lamps from Elephant Energy and her sales increased dramatically as a result–in fact, her sales increased so much that Elizabeth was able to pay back her loan almost three weeks early. December and January are important sales months in Namibia, making this second loan even more critical than the first! If Elizabeth is able to purchase additional stock, her sales will increase and Elizabeth will end 2015 strong. The lights Elizabeth sells are used by school children to continue studying once the sun goes down, by market stall keepers to keep shops open an additional 4 hours each day, and by families in distant villages to charge cell phones and stay connected.
