Maria Elena's story
Maria lives in a community in the Department of Intibucá, Honduras. She has been a corn farmer for 10 years. She is 32; she is married and has five children. It is clear that Maria works hard to maintain her family and at night, after a hard day of work, the conditions in the house are not very good due to the lack of electricity. She hopes that with the solar energy system, their children will be able to do their homework and improve the living conditions. Maria is requesting a loan to purchase a complete solar electric system from Soluz Honduras, that will permit to have a better lighting, charge cell phones, and save in traditional energy expenditure
