A loan of $375 helped to purchase a 50-watt solar energy system with four lights for his home.


Rolando's story

Sr. Rolando is married and has four children. He is a farmer who is currently growing beans. The community where he lives does not receive electricity, so Rolando is requesting a loan so that he can acquire a solar energy system that will provide light at night.

He will also be able to have a bit of a distraction by being able to watch television with his family. In addition, Rolando will be able to charge his mobile phone battery so that he can communicate with relatives who live far away.
