A loan of $275 helped inventory for a clean energy business.


Junior's story

Junior lives in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Even though he has a university degree he is currently unemployed. He has worked with EarthSpark before helping on marketing our clean energy products. He would now like to launch his first business by becoming an EarthSpark Clean Energy Entreprenuer. With a Kiva loan, Junior will be set up with a “Business in a Bag”, a kit containing a personalized mix of small-scale clean energy products, marketing materials and training on energy literacy, SMS tracking of sales, and basic business skills. He is looking for a loan of 260 dollars to purchase stock for kerosene stoves and charcoal-efficient cookstoves because these are the products most in demand in his area. Both of these stoves help minimize the effects of charcoal on the environment by reducing carbon emissions and the need to cut down trees to produce charcoal.
