Bonerge has lived in the rural town of San Remigio for about 8 years. He lives with his wife and 19-year old son. He says that he had to start working at a very young age just to survive and has always had to work hard. He now makes a living partly from work at a local trucking company and partly from farming with his son. He wants electricity but there's not much chance of getting it from conventional sources and he's applying for this loan so that he can buy a solar-powered system that will generate enough electricity to power his house.

Additional Information

More information about this loan

TECNOSOL is a for-profit renewable energy company that provides electricity and solar powered products to families living off the grid in Nicaragua. It enables households to generate their own energy and replace toxic and expensive sources of light and heat like kerosene, diesel and wood. 

Many of TECNOSOL's clients cannot afford the high upfront costs of buying solar products. Kiva loans help these households purchase clean energy products. 

Solar home systems are much more than a solar lamp and can provide users with life changing amounts of power: enough power to run multiple lights, home appliances, radios, and TVs. These systems are modular, enabling clients to add solar panels and batteries to meet their increasing energy demands.  

Important Information

This Kiva loan will be used to provide borrowers with needed goods or services, as opposed to cash or financial credit.
