Drocella's story

Drocella is a 42-year-old woman from Rulindo District in the Northern Province of Rwanda. She is seeking a loan of $50 to purchase 10 rechargeable LED lights, which she will resell to people without electricity in her village. Every week or so, these customers will return to her to have their lights recharged for just $0.20. Drocella started selling lights in December, 2012, and she has sold 20 lights to date, providing clean energy to 100 people. She is also a farmer and will reinvest the money she makes into expanding her other business to earn more money for herself and her husband.
