A loan of $500 helped to buy a solar electricity generator.

Jorge Antonio's story

Jorge, 25, is a young man dedicated to growing coffee. He has six years’ experience in this line of work which generates income to cover his needs and obligations he has at home; he’s in a common law relationship and is the father of a son.

Jorge is asking for a loan to cover the purchase of a solar electric generator which is a great desire of himself and his family because they’d like to have electricity for better quality of life. He’d like to do away with all the candles he uses to light his house because they are not healthy in that they produce smoke that’s harmful to respiratory systems. Besides, a well-lighted house allows for more family activities at night.
