José Crecencio, 50, is married and the father of three children. José has been a coffee grower for several years. Thanks to this business he earns profits needed to support his family.
José will use the loan to buy his own solar generator so that he can have light at night that’s not damaging like candle light. The zone where he lives does not have electric services and at night they have to use candles or pitch pine for illumination. This will improve his family’s quality of life. He told us that he feels very happy because this is a big step for the community he lives in.
