A loan of $400 helped inventory for a clean energy business.


Yvrose's story

Yvrose lives in Port Salut, Haiti, about a 5-hour drive from the capital Port-au-Prince. She already has a business selling mobile phones and phone credit. She is now hoping to expand her business by becoming an EarthSpark Clean Energy Entreprenuer. With a Kiva loan, Yvrose 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. A 400 dollar loan will allow her to start selling solar desk lamps and charcoal efficient stoves. She would like to sell EarthSpark products so that the people in her community can benefit from the products and help ameliorate the economic and environmental problems in her country.
