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

Jose Miguel's story

Mr. José Miguel is 59, married, and has two dependent children who help out with the work on the farm. Jose has 15 manzanas (about 26 acres) of coffee crops; this is his main source of income. He harvests annually. Jose has over 20 years' experience cultivating coffee, and he is able to cover his financial obligations with his income from this work.

Jose will use this loan for the purchase of a solar panel. His home is located in a mountainous region, so electric power is out of the question. Having a solar energy system will allow him to work at night. After paying off this loan, Jose Miguel intends to continue working with Prisma to improve his farm.
