A loan of $775 helped to purchase a solar panel.


Nelson De Jesus's story

Nelson is 44 years old and lives with common-law wife. His children have already formed their own families, leaving Nelson and his partner to live alone. Nelson makes a living cultivating coffee. His has a good depth of experience and says that since he was a boy his father taught him the work, and now he has dedicated himself to the trade. Nelson plans to use the loan to purchase a solar panel so he can light his house at nights. It's what he has always wanted. He has never had electrical service and has been lighting fires and candles all his life, harming his health and the environment. Thanks to the solar panel his quality of life will improve.
