A loan helped a member to buy a solar power system for his home.


Gs. Las Lajas Group's story

Molvis is a 27 year old entrepreneur. He lives with his wife and children in the community of Las Lajas, on the border with Nicaragua. His productive and commercial activity is a store that he runs in his own home. There, he serves customers with his wife. They visit him, seeking staple products. He also works as a motorcycle taxi driver, as a cattle rancher, and a farmer. He does all of these activities and he is a very hard worker.

Molvis is asking for the loan to buy a 85 W solar power system, so that he can improve his and his family's quality of life. He will save money from not having to buy gas and candles. Having solar energy has been his biggest dream.

Molvis asked for the loan in a group with Norma and Rosibel. Both of them work in farming and cattle ranching.
