Oscar Ivan
Mr. Oscar S. is 33. He is in a common-law marriage and has two children. His main source of income for supporting his family is coffee growing, and he has five years' experience doing so. Oscar will use this loan to purchase a solar-powered generator, since his community does not have electricity. All his life, they have lit their home with oil lamps and candles. We know that this is harmful for the environment and for personal health.
Oscar will now also be able to provide entertainment for his family and buy himself a cell phone to communicate with other family members; he hasn't bought one until now because he had no way to charge the battery.
