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.

More information about this loan
These loans are designed for women who live in communities that do not have electricity, and where the government does not plan to install electricity for at least five years. This financing enables them to purchase solar panels ranging from 36 to 75 watts. COMIXMUL has partnered with an established solar company in Honduras to install the panels and provide maintenance when required. The panels themselves are guaranteed for 25 years. Historically, COMIXMUL has had significant demand for this product that it has been unable to meet. Thanks to Kiva, COMIXMUL will be able to expand access to solar technology to more borrowers.
