Oliva Ester's story

Oliva Ester lives near the town of Guadalupe y Calvo in the Mexican state of Chihuahua. She lives in a remote community that, due to the complexity and expense of construction of its terrain, does not have access to the electricity grid. This means that Oliva Ester and her family must resort to using expensive and polluting diesel lamps or candles to light their home after dark. This light is needed so that the children are able to study for school and Oliva Ester is able to carry out essential household tasks that cannot be completed during daylight hours, as she works all day.

To resolve this issue, Oliva Ester 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 Oliva Ester’s payments to cover the cost of a regular maintenance service and furthermore provide for a replacement battery when it reaches the end of its product life. By helping Oliva Ester, you will help ensure that this family can continue to enjoy the benefits of clean renewable energy in their home for years to come.
