A loan of $475 helped to expand existing solar power system for his house.


Hashim's story

Firstly, Hashim would like to extend his gratitude to all KIVA lenders who have helped him in getting the first loan, which he used to purchase a solar power system for his house. That power system has mitigated the effects of absence of public electricity supply. Now, his children can watch their favorite TV programs and his wife can operate a washing machine.

Currently, Hashim is seeking to apply for another loan to expand the existing solar power system so that his wife can operate more home appliances and his children can watch TV for more hours. He wants to purchase a 150W solar panel, a 70amp battery, a DC/AC LED TV and a DC/AC fan, so he has applied for a YER115,000 loan from Al-Amal Microfinance Bank.

Hisham is looking forward to starting up an income- generating project to diversify his income sources.


This loan is special because:

It provides clean energy to people affected by violence in Yemen.
