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

A loan helped to purchase a solar energy home system to have a healthier energy source and improve their wellbeing.

Jeorgina's story

Jeorgina lives near the town of Santa María del Río in the Mexican state of San Luis Potosí. She 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 Jeorgina and her family must resort to using expensive and polluting diesel lamps or candles to light their home after dark. Light is needed so that the children are able to study for school and Jeorgina is able to carry out essential household tasks that could not be completed during daylight hours as she is out working all day.

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