Raquel Del Carmen's story

Raquel was born in 1982 in a community called Nacascolo. She was raised by her mother and grandmother and started grade school at age 7. After finishing primary she started helping her mother with the housework. Now she is married and has two children. She and her husband worked to hard to establish a grocery store. In their community there is no running water so they decided to open a well on their property. Now they are requesting a loan to buy a pump system and solar panel since the electricity goes out frequently where they live. The water pump would be of great benefit since Raquel has to travel quite a distance to get water using a wheelbarrow and jugs to bring it from the well to her home. She would be very grateful for a loan to buy a pump system and solar panel.
