Jean Adrien
Jean Adrien lives in Formond, Chantal, in the South Department of Haiti in an area with erratic access to electricity. For one year he has had a grocery store that sells food supplies. He is an environmental agent in his locality, and one of the reasons he wants to sell cookstoves and solar energy desk lamps is because he doesn’t like seeing people cut down trees to produce charcoal. EarthSpark's efficient cookstoves can help minimize the effects of charcoal on the environment by reducing carbon emissions and deforestation.
He has recently decided to start selling EarthSpark clean energy products to expand his current business.
With a Kiva loan, Jean 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.
