Jorge's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy a solar system that will improve the conditions and quality of life of his home by eliminating pollution caused by candles and kerosene.

Jorge's story

Jorge is 24 years old and has worked farming basic grains for 7 years. He lives in the Olanchito, Honduras community with his wife and two children. Jorge’s wife wakes up very early to prepare food and so that Jorge can go to work in the fields. However, this work is a bit difficult since having no access to electricity, she must use candles that are harmful to her health. Therefore, Jorge is requesting a loan through Soluz Honduras to acquire a solar system that will benefit his family’s life. He will not have to walk long distances to charge his cell phone and they will not be exposed to the toxic fumes produced by the candles. Jorge hopes this system will improve these aspects and allow his wife to do her work in the best way possible without damaging her health.
