A loan of $700 helped to buy a solar panel.


Hector Diobaldo's story

Hector Diobaldo is 40 years old. He lives with his partner and has three children. Hector grows coffee and farms. He has several years experience in growing coffee and working the land. This business activity has enabled him to support his family. Hector is requesting a loan to buy a solar-energy system so that he can make progress. He believes that having power will enable him to carry out work at home during the evening hours and so his work will be more efficient and continuous. His children will also be able to carry out their work with better vision as, since they started school, they have had to light their home with oil lamps at night and sometimes with candles.
