Florentina's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to purchase an solar illumination system to improve her family's living conditions.

Florentina's story

Florentina, 53 years old, lives in one of Yoro, Honduras communities. She has worked growing coffee along her husband from a very young age. She also has a small grocery store where she sells basic staples.

She wishes to be able to grow her business and provide better living conditions to her two sons but it is a bit hard given that there is no access to power services in her community. House work becomes difficult because they need to use gas lamps or candles at night.

This is why Florentina is requesting a loan from Soluz Honduras, to purchase a solar illumination system to improve her family's living conditions. It will also help her to attend to her clients until later at night.
