Esmelda's story

Esmelda is a single mother to a nine year old girl. She studied until 3rd grade and works with her mother and siblings managing the farm they live on. They have beef and dairy cattle, pigs, and calves. They also grow basic grains like beans, corn, and cacao. The community Esmelda lives in does not have electricity. This is why she is requesting a loan to buy two solar power systems and have them installed on the farm where she lives. These will be very useful for all members of the household. She will be able to see at night and in the mornings when they have to go out and work in the fields. Esmelda would be grateful if she is granted the opportunity of this loan to purchase these solar power systems.

This loan is special because:
