Fritz's story

This loan will help Fritz introduce simple, life-saving technologies such as solar lamps, water filters and clean cookstoves to his community.

Fritz wanted to become a doctor but due to financial difficulties in his family only completed high school. He became a construction worker at a young age. He is married with three children and now he holds a role as a leader of the neighbourhood units in the area.

When he heard about Kopernik’s Tech Kiosk program, he immediately jumped on board; not only for its obvious business opportunities but he sees the technologies are simple, much needed and affordable. Clean water, safe methods of cooking, and affordable solar lighting are perfect solutions to a lot of the social and economic issues in his community.

Fritz will use the loan to buy stock and increase his income to make improvements to his home.
