Melvin's story

In the community of Yoro, Honduras, where 48-year-old Melvin lives, there is no access to electricity. Nevertheless, this has not prevented him from working as a grain farmer, a job that he has been doing for 20 years. Although Melvin's activities have not been affected, he and his family have suffered for many years from not having access to a better quality of life offered by electricity. For a long time they have been forced to buying kerosene lamps, batteries for lamps and walking long distances to be able to access a cell phone charging station. Above all, they have been exposed to the health impacts caused by kerosene and candles. Melvin is requesting a loan from Soluz Honduras to purchase a solar home system. Melvin is sure that the solar home system will make him a more productive worker and will improve his life and that of his family, since they will not be exposed to toxic gases or fumes.
