A loan of $875 helped to buy a solar energy panel.

Jorge De Jesus's story

Don Jorge, 45, lives with his common-law wife and is a coffee grower. He has much expertise in growing and handling coffee since he learned as a child, working alongside his father until he became independent. Coffee is his main source of income and allows him to cover household expenses.

Jorge plans to use the loan to buy a solar energy panel since there is no electric energy service where he lives. Up until now they have used candles or fire starter wood, but they long to have their own source of safe electricity.
