Pedro's story

Pedro lives near the town of Candelaria in the Mexican state of Campeche. He lives in a remote community that, due to the complexity and expense of construction in such terrain, does not have access to the electricity grid. This means that Pedro and his family must resort to using expensive and polluting diesel lamps or candles to light their home after dark. However, this light is needed so that the children are able to study for school and Pedro is able to carry out essential household tasks that could not be completed during daylight hours as he was out working all day.

To resolve this issue, Pedro has already installed a 325W solar energy system to provide clean, electrical energy to light his home and improve their quality of life. However, these systems require regular maintenance to ensure consistent operation. Your loan will help fund Pedro’s payments to cover the cost of a regular maintenance service and furthermore provide for a replacement battery when it reaches the end of its product life. By helping Pedro you will help ensure that this family can continue to enjoy the benefits of clean renewable energy in their home for years to come.
