Heya! launches €200k debt raise with Trine

Trine is a crowd-funding website created to provide debt finance to companies selling solar products in off-grid communities in the developing world.

We’re thrilled to have launched our first campaign through Trine; and excited to report that 14 days into our campaign, the public has pledged €80,000. We’re well on our way to reaching our €200,000 target.

Heya! will use the funds to provide working capital to female agents who want to sell solar lights within their communities.

It’s a win, win, win: Women get to build their businesses; Kenyan consumers get access to solar products (which they can buy on credit); and lenders receive 6% interest.
