Sergio's story

In the community of Atlántida, Honduras where 23-year-old Sergio lives, there is no access to electricity. This has not prevented him from working as a pig farmer and running his grocery business. While Sergio's activities have not been affected, he and his family have suffered for many years due to not having access to a better quality of life offered by electricity. For a long time they have had to buy kerosene lamps and batteries for lamps. They have also had to walk long distances to be able to charge their cell phones. Above all, they have been exposed to the health damages that kerosene and candles cause. That is why Sergio requests a loan from Soluz Honduras. He needs to acquire a solar lighting system to be able to keep getting up very early for work and to make household chores at night easier. He is sure that the solar lighting system will make him a more productive worker and improve his life and that of his family since they will not be exposed to toxic gases or fumes.
