Claude's story

Claude lives in Chardonnières where he works as a building technician and professor. His wife also work as secretary. They married and have two 2 children in school. He is interesting in becoming a retailer to promote EarthSpark products to help farmers so they do not continue to cut down trees, consume kerosene for lighting, and have more savings. He has bought clean energy products in the past but now wishes to join the EarthSpark team as a clean energy entrepreneur.

He is looking for a loan to help him purchase EarthSpark products to sell in his locality. He is looking to purchase solar light bulbs, solar desk lamps and efficient stoves. With a Kiva loan, Claude 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.
