A loan of $400 helped to purchase stock for a clean energy business.

Lormero's story

Lormero lives in the town of Cavaillon, in the South Department of Haiti. He has had a store for 4 years that sells Digicel cellular phone, SIM card, phone recharge card and there is a Western Union inside. He has one employee in his store. He has recently decided to start selling EarthSpark clean energy products to expand his current business and hopefully be able to employ more staff.

With a Kiva loan, Lormero 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 to launch his business. For his first inventory he will purchase solar desk lamps and charcoal-efficient cookstoves.
