Mercedes Del Carmen's story

Mercedes is 37 years old. She is the oldest of her siblings. She says that she grew up in a home that was humble but had plenty of family unity. Fortunately, she had her parents’ full support and she managed to study and finish high school. This has served her well because her family has a small farm and a bus business, so she is in charge of administration for these businesses. She is a single mother—she has one daughter and has always lived in her parents’ home. There isn’t any electricity on their small farm, so she has applied for a loan to purchase and install a solar energy system. This will help improve the value of the property, and it would be possible to do other types of work there.
