A loan of $400 helped to purchase stock of pay-as-you-go solar products.


Jessy's story

Jessy is a 20-year old recent high-school graduate who lives with her family in the Chongwe district of Zambia, about 45 miles east of Lusaka. She has lived in Chongwe all her life, which helps her feel a strong sense of community with her neighbors and friends. As a Zamsolar solar distribution agent, she has enjoyed helping her community by providing safe, clean and affordable alternative energy products to replace candles and paraffin. Her work with Zamsolar also provides a source of income for herself and her family, and she feels that she gains valuable entrepreneurial experience that a recent graduate would not normally be able to find.

A $400 loan will allow Jessy to stock additional inventory of the Angaza Pay-As-You-Go SoLite3 to sell to wait-listed customers in Chongwe. She is happy that the SoLite3 lets her sell clean energy to people in her community who normally wouldn’t be able to afford a high-quality solar product.

Note: This loan is being re-posted because the original loan contained an error in the repayment schedule.
