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

Heliodoro's story

Heliodoro is 66 years old, married, and currently has six children who are dependent on him. His main business activity is coffee growing. He has been growing coffee for more than 30 years. This business has been a yearly source of income which has enabled him to cover his family expenses.

Heliodoro will use his loan to buy a solar panel so that he can light his house. It has been his wish, and that of his whole family, to be able to enjoy this service. The possibility of having electricity is very remote and he has lit his home with oil lamps, and occasionally candles, his whole life. Thanks to this solar panel, he will be able to improve his quality of life.
