A loan of $400 helped to purchase a solar panel system.


Alejandro's story

Sr. Alejandro is 57 years old, in a common-law marriage, and only has one child who is still a dependent. His other children are married and have their own households. Alejandro is a farmer who grows coffee and other crops.


Don Alejandro will use this loan to buy a solar panel system so that he can have light in his home without having to use candles or firewood since they can be harmful to one’s health and the environment. He has been using candles to light his home his entire life. Alejandro believes purchasing a solar panel system will change the lifestyle of himself and his family. They have longed for this for quite some time.
