My motivation:

My life would have been completely different if I did not have safe lighting to use to work and study. Increasing the productive capacity of children and more broadly everyone with safe energy is critical.

About my borrower: 

Asura Sarder and Group  A group from Magrahat in West Bengal, needs a loan to purchase solar lanterns for lighting. 20 of them are women- Asura, Rupali, Fatema, Manjuyara and 16 other members. All of them are married and live with their families that include children. Their children have to study by kerosene light almost every night because of frequent powercuts. Kerosene is not only costly, but it is also unhealthy and can harm the families’ health over time. In order to change this, they are looking to purchase solar lanterns for lighting that would avoid the fumes and the fire risk of kerosene lamps. They are also much brighter, and give opportunities for study, income-generating work and recreation after dark. They are requesting a loan of Rs. 32000 to purchase a solar home system. They will repay it on time with their monthly income in installments.

A few things that you may want to know about the money that you lend in:

This is a loan, not a donation.

  • 100% of your money goes to the end borrower
