A loan of $8,000 helped open a solar home system retail showroom.


Edward's story

Edward is 33 years old and has two children. He used to have his own small shop where he sold products for everyday use. After he got in touch with the new available solar home systems, he bought one for his own shop to have illumination also in the dark and to improve the security during nighttime. Due to his good experience with the product, he decided to build up a retail store for solar energy products. He already received solar entrepreneurship training from African Solar Rise and is now eager to realize his ambition. A loan would help him to fulfill his dream and bring light into his village.


This loan is special because:

It supports entrepreneurs who want to start clean energy businesses.
