A loan of $575 helped to purchase stock for a clean energy business.


Yvrose's story

Yvrose lives in Port Salut, Haiti, about a 5-hour drive from the capital Port-au-Prince. She already has a business selling mobile phones and phone credit. She has started to sell clean energy products with EarthSpark as clean energy entrepreneur.
With the help of a Kiva loan last year, she was 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. 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 continue her business and is asking for a new loan. With this money, she will continue to sell solar desk lamps and efficient stoves.
