Sra. Ignacia is 58 years old, married, and has three dependents. She is a coffee grower and has two plots of land for producing this crop. Ignacia has plenty of experience with managing her land. She also operates a grocery store in her home. These two businesses are her main sources of income. Nachita, as she is known in her neighborhood, has a reputation for being a very responsible and hardworking woman.

Nachita will use this loan to buy a solar energy system. Her home is located in the mountains, so it is difficult for her to receive electricity. This service is very important for the development and education of families. Thanks to this solar panel system, Nachita will have light in the evenings so that she can have more time to attend to her customers. She always plans to continue working with Prisma so that she can improve her farm and better stock her store after she finishes the payments on her solar generator.
