Alfonso's Group's story

Alfonso is a proud father who works hard every day for his family. He currently lives in Mezquital, a small town located in the state of Durango, Mexico, where he has lived his whole life.

Alfonso's main income comes from a store he owns in the center of his village. He works 6 days a week and uses all of his salary to assure better living conditions for his family. He has been able to send his kids to school, however, when they get home it is already pretty dark outside which makes it hard for them to study. They currently light their home with candles. This is clearly not the best idea because it not only provides poor lighting but also affects their health since candles release harmful gases.

These reasons are why Alfonso is looking forward to obtaining a solar energy home system. This will help achieve a better education for his children, avoid any situation that could affect his family’s health, and improve his economic situation.
