Adilio De Jesus
Adilio, 65 years old, lives in the village of Los Cerrones. Being a single child, he was not able to go to school, because he had to help his mother with work on the family farm. He lives with his spouse and their children, whom he taught how to farm and how to grow coffee. In his village, there is no electricity, which is why he asks for a loan in order to buy solar panels. Thus, his family's living conditions will improve, he will be able to shell the coffee beans after sunset in his house, and in the morning his wife will be able to prepare food for him.

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.
