MiCrédito is a new Global Partnerships (GP) partner in Nicaragua that aims to connect rural, off-grid populations with access to solar technologies. With technical assistance and funding from GP, as well as new relationships with Nicaraguan solar companies Tecnosol and NicaSolar, the for-profit microfinance institution will begin offering financing for solar products, thus potentially connecting thousands with electricity that they otherwise could not access.
