Jesus
Jesús, 40, is married and mother of seven children who attend the local school. She did not complete elementary school, she only reached second grade. She, her husband and children work growing coffee. Jesús is very devoted to her home, hardworking and humble and she also collaborates with her children’s care helping them daily by preparing their meals and with their chores.

One of the great daily difficulties she has, though, is dealing with the lack of electricity at home. She tends to her family at night and in the pre-dawn hours by candle light or burning pitch pine whose smoke is very damaging to their respiratory health. Her house is wood so the least bit of inattention can lead to a fire and the loss of everything they’ve worked hard for so many years to acquire and enjoy.

Her dream is to support her children’s schooling and to see them become university graduates to give them better quality of life starting with giving them favorable, feasible conditions at home by installing a solar panel that will provide electricity so they can do their homework in a more healthy, comfortable way. She considers this project to be a great blessing for her family’s well-being and for her home’s and her house’s development.
