Sr. Wilfredo is married and the father of 5 children; the minors study at the village school. Wilfredo has been growing coffee for the last 8 years. He also plants corn and currently works on a block of land. These are his sources of income to cover family expenses and meet with his commitments.

Wilfredo will use the loan to buy a solar panel. The house he lives in is inside the mountain and it is virtually impossible for the government company responsible for distributing energy to the whole country to provide electricity services there.

Thanks to this service he will provide a better quality of life for his children as well as helping them to study at night. Once he has paid off the solar panel he plans to continue working with our institution so as to be supported with other loans for the maintenance of his farm.
