Gede Suta's story

Gede was born and raised in Nusa Penida, a small island off the south-east coast of Bali. The island is considered an underdeveloped area. Electricity and clean water are only accessible on certain parts of the island. Gede owns a small shop selling food, drinks and toiletries. He also sells phone credit for extra income.

After learning about technologies designed for people living in remote communities, Gede was very keen to sell these technologies in his community. He saw a market for solar lights that can help people living in areas with limited access to electricity, and for water filters for people who usually drink straight from rain water because clean water is very hard to get, and for clean, fuel-efficient cookstoves for households who still use three-stone stoves which produce a lot of harmful smoke.

He will use the loan to purchase these technologies and set up a technology kiosk, the first on Nusa Penida selling life-changing, eco-friendly technologies.
