Gabino María's story

Gabino María lives near the town of Los Cabos in the Mexican state of Baja California Sur. He 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 Gabino María and his family must resort to using expensive and polluting diesel lamps or candles to light their home after dark. However, this light is needed so that the children are able to study for school and Gabino María is able to carry out essential household tasks which could not be completed during daylight hours as he was out working all day. To resolve this issue, Gabino María has already installed a 325W solar energy system to provide clean, electrical energy to light his home and improve their quality of life. However, these systems require regular maintenance to ensure consistent operation. Your loan will help fund Gabino María’s payments to cover the cost of regular maintenance service and furthermore provide for a replacement battery when it reaches the end of its product life. By helping Gabino María you will help ensure that this family can continue to enjoy the benefits of clean renewable energy in their home for years to come.
