Lise's story

Lise is an EarthSpark clean energy entrepreneur selling Lanp Enèji Pwòp solar light bulbs and TiPowa solar desk lamps with mobile phone charging on a rent-to-own basis. She lives in Les Cayes, the capital of the South Department of Haiti with her husband and child. She currently has 32 customers renting out Lanp Enèji Pwòp and TiPowa and she has started to sell clean energy products with EarthSpark as clean energy entrepreneur. 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. With the help of a Kiva loan last time, 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.
