Melida Del Carmen
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.
