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

A loan helped to buy a solar lighting system that will improve the living conditions of her family.

Mercedes's story

Mercedes lives in the town of Yolo, Honduras. She is 49 years old, and since a young age she has struggled to get her seven children ahead. She works along with her husband growing coffee, and now her children also help them to have a dignified life.

In the town where they live, there is no access to electric energy services, so they use candles or kerosene lamps, which hurt the environment and their health, and also make nighttime chores more difficult.

For this reason, she is asking Soluz Honduras for this loan that will allow her to acquire a solar lighting system, with which she will be able to do nighttime chores in the house more easily, improving their living conditions.
