Thanks to all of you out there who have helped with these Solar Loans. These Solar Loans will help to spread Sunshine and decrease CO2 emission for our planet earth. For those of you who would like to take part in speeding up our earthly transition toward the Solar/Renewable Energy Age, (in order to reduce problems associated with pollution, energy, climate change, national security, or job opportunities) please feel free to join us at Sunisthefuture Team at Kiva.  I am happy to report that, since the inception of Sunisthefuture Team at Kiva (March  13, 2012), we have helped entrepreneurs and home owners from many different parts of the world (USA as well as elsewhere) with 1023 loans to establish their small businesses in Solar Energy, Renewable Energy, Energy Efficiency, or Recycling projects (with occasional tools, seeds, cattle, etc.) via microfinance.  Each and every one of you is very significant in making these projects a reality. We are optimistic and hopeful that by spreading more Sunshine (use of Solar Energy) throughout the planet earth more quickly,  our planet earth will be a much better place to live. We are hopeful and optimistic that sun, water, wind, and geothermal energy will lead us into a world free from pollution and international conflicts.

If you share our vision, please feel free to join and invite your friends/family to join Sunisthefuture Team at Kiva and/or support our cause by visiting/purchasing from our Sunshine Online Store.

Good News: the Solar Loans we’ve helped  at our Sunisthefuture Team at Kiva within the last 48 hours are now all fully funded, below:

1.  Phaijang B Group of Motbung, India, a loan in helping a member of the group to buy mini-solar home lighting system

Phaijang B is a group formed by women of common interest to get a loan for buying mini-solar home lighting systems so that their families stay in a better home environment at night, due to the shortage in the power supply in their area. Lamhat (32), the featured member of the group with her hand raised, is skilled in weaving and devotes most of her time to weaving different types of traditional shawls to generate income. She lives in a very remote village called Phaijang which is a 45-minute drive from Imphal, Manipur. Their family includes the mother, father, and three school-going children.  She considers education a key to achieve one’s aim in life and had been giving her best effort to give the best to her children to excel in their education. As the area faces insufficient power supply, their daily duties are affected after dusk, especially the study hours of the children after sunset. After buying the mini solar home lighting system, the children are able to study in comfort after dusk and for longer period with better concentration. Their academic performance is much better now which is the reason for availing the loan. While the children study under the solar home lighting, the mother does the household chores and weaves in comfort. Her weaving hours were limited before, but now she can weave in the evening and increase her production. The family is very happy to receive such a loan and thanks WSDS for lending such a loan.

Hor is a 42-year-old woman who lives in a remote area of Prey Veng Province, Cambodia. At home, she is a lovely mother of two dependent children and two married children. To make a living, she manages and operates a farming business in rice farm land which is located near her house. So far, she has been involved in this business for nearly twenty years. The average earning is USD 2.00 a day. Hor wants to have household energy at a reduced monthly cost by purchasing a solar energy home system. Because there is inadequate money, she has requested a Kiva loan through its partner, HKL. After this initial investment, she hopes to have clean energy to power her household lights, TV and radio. She is very happy and thankful because with this loan, HKL has provided her a special interest rate lower than its general loan rates. (source: Kiva)
