A loan of $725 helped to introduce simple, life-saving technologies such as solar lamps, water filters and clean cookstoves to his community.

Dekstro's story

Dekstro is a talented tailor. He and his wife started offering sewing courses in their home to teach housewives a new skill. The local government set up a community empowerment project and invited Dekstro to travel to small villages to teach people how to sew. However, this income does not provide enough money for his family of four.

Dekstro has joined Kopernik’s Tech Kiosk network to sell simple life-changing technologies. He will use the loan to buy stock and the additional income will provide much needed support to his family.

Dekstro also sees an opportunity to answer some of the problems in villages where electricity is not available. He is keen to educate his customers in the cost-savings and health benefits of the technologies, particularly in using solar powered lamps instead of harmful kerosene.
