A loan of $400 helped to purchase stock for a clean energy business.


Rosane's story

Thanks to the support of Kiva funders, Rosane is applying for a new loan! After being funded on Kiva, Rosane received 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. She used this “business in a bag” to launch a clean energy entrepreneurship with EarthSpark. She sold out of her products so quickly that she has paid off her loan and is now coming back to us for another loan. This time, she would like to double her business. With this money, she will continue to sell solar desk lamps and charcoal-efficient stoves on a rent-to-own basis in her community.
