Domingo Alejando
Domingo was born in the Poza Azul community. He wasn't able to go to school because there wasn't a school nearby. So from an early age he worked farming with his father. He has a partner with whom he has 3 children. They do not attend school because there is not a school near their community. This is something that makes him sad because he wishes that his children could study in school because he didn't have that opportunity. A few years ago he bought a solar energy system, but now his family has grown and he wishes to acquire a loan in order to increase the power and have electricity in his entire home which will permit his to be able to have more illumination in his home.

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.
