A loan of $575 helped to buy a solar panel.

Melida Del Carmen's story

Melida del Carmen is 35 years old, married, and has five children. She and her husband are coffee growers. They currently have four manzanas (one manzana = 1.68 acres) of coffee which is their main source of income. Her husband also works in agriculture which makes extra income for their family.

Melida will use this loan to buy a solar panel. The area in which they live is very remote and they lack this basic service. Thanks to this solar panel, they will be able to light their home at night and also watch television. Melida plans to continue working with Prisma in order to improve her farm.
