A loan of $850 helped to purchase renewable energy technologies to sell to his community.


Yohanes's story

Yohannes is making great progress in selling green technologies in his community. He is excited to educate his customers in the health and cost benefits of the solar lights.

Kopernik originally listed this loan with fixed monthly repayments however as actual sales are difficult to predict in advance, repayments were not being made at the fixed rate. This loan will be repaid as actual sales are made. He may even pay his loan off early!

Yohannes hopes you can support him again.
