Clean Energy Funding – Changing One Life at a Time: Story of Krishnadevi

Posted: February 27, 2023

The grit, determination, and can-do attitude of our women partners, who are fast emerging as clean energy leaders, is something we can all learn from. Their stories are stories of courage, where they embrace clean energy, and not only make a difference to their lives but also to the lives of many others.

By embracing clean energy alternatives, our local community partners create a positive impact on their families' well-being, addressing issues like indoor pollution, respiratory ailments, water-borne diseases, and reducing carbon emissions. Their goal as micro-entrepreneurs is to share these benefits with others. They tirelessly travel from village to village, raising awareness and conducting product and tech demonstrations, serving as a daily source of inspiration.

Our women partners gain the means to generate and stabilize their finances, leading to financial independence. This empowerment allows them to take charge of their lives and make improved lifestyle choices that have far-reaching effects. Consequently, this strengthens families, communities, and countries, contributing to a positive global change.

With extensive experience in India, Africa, and Mongolia, MicroEnergy Credits collaborates with a diverse range of microfinance institutions (MFIs), non-banking financial corporations (NBFCs), and banks on clean energy lending programs. We build upon this experience and deep understanding of market conditions to enable the accessibility of clean energy alternatives. Working alongside our MFI partners, we empower communities to take control of their clean energy future in a way that upholds their families and local economies with dignity.

Impact Story

The aftermath of the recent global pandemic includes compromised health care systems and heightened gender-based inequities. MEC, in association with MFI partners, is helping rural women generate and stabilize their finances to become economically empowered. This enables them to take control of their lives and make better lifestyle choices.

Meet Krishnadevi from Arkha, who claims that her doctor’s bills have reduced after using a better cookstove that causes less indoor pollution. She is also a micro-entrepreneur who is a part of MEC’s network. She vouches for a better quality of life and added monetary savings. Krishnadevi aspires to introduce each member of her community to the benefits of clean energy and make a difference to their lives.
