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

A loan helped to purchase a solar system to increase the power generated by his already-installed system to be able to connect a radio and listen to news.

Marcos's story

Marcos is a young family man who has worked since he was little as a farmer in a share-land called El Encanto. He has lived in El Encanto since he was born. El Encanto is located in the Mexican state of Campeche, which has a high poverty rate.

Marcos has two children, and he has always encouraged them to study and become better persons and achieve better opportunities than he did. For many years, Marcos' family used candles to light their house. Now they have a solar system to generate electricity, but it is not enough to cover their needs.

Marcos wants to purchase a new solar system to increase the power generated; with this, to be able to turn on the light for more hours at night and to connect a radio to listen to the news and know what is happening outside of the share-land.
