A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase stock for a clean energy business.


Yvrose's story

Thanks to the support of Kiva lenders, Yvrose is applying for a new loan! After being funded on Kiva, Yvrose 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 and is asking for 1000 USD. With this money, she will continue to sell solar desk lamps and efficient stoves.
