A loan of $475 helped to introduce simple, life-saving technologies such as solar lamps, water filters and clean cookstoves to his community.


Marthen's story

Marthen owns a small shop selling everyday goods, snacks and toiletries. 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, Marthen has joined Kopernik’s Tech Kiosk network to sell simple life-changing technologies. He will use this loan to buy stock and grow his business. Marthen also hopes Kopernik’s training program will improve his business skills.

Marthen has already purchased the technologies from another Tech Kiosk to prove the efficiency of the products. The water filter has saved him almost $50 a month already as he no longer needs to buy water. He is therefore keen to educate his customers in the cost-savings and health benefits of the technologies.
