A loan of $925 helped to buy simple, life-saving technologies and resell them in his community.

Hemdan's story

Hemdan’s mother-in-law owns a small kiosk selling everyday goods, snacks, bottled drinks, and toiletries. Even though he does not own it, he regularly checks on the stock, manages the kiosk, and always looks for new opportunities to grow the business. However, more shops have opened in his area and competition is tough. He is looking for an innovative solution to improve his business.

To increase his income, Hemdan has joined Kopernik’s Tech Kiosk network to sell simple life-changing technologies. He will use the loan to buy stock such as water filters, cooking stoves, and solar lamps. Hemdan also hopes Kopernik’s training program will improve his business skills.

Moreover, Hemdan also sees an opportunity from the solar lamp technology to answer electricity problems in Rote, a small island where he grew up. He is a very proactive entrepreneur who markets his products to the community instead of passively waiting for customers.
