Juana's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase a 50-watt solar power system with 4 lights to be installed in her house.

Juana's story

Juana is married and has 9 children. She, with her children, work at the agricultural tasks planting corn and beans. In the community where they live, there is no electricity, so she is asking for a solar-powered system to be able to have lights at night without needing candles and, in addition, she would like to be able to enjoy television a little. Juana would be very grateful if the opportunity to get this solar-powered system were granted to her.
