A loan of $150 helped buy environmentally sound lighting for his house.

Hernan Gilberto's story

27-year old Hernán Gilberto lives with his wife, children, and mother in his own home. He has worked in agriculture and fishing for several years. He is a committed, enterprising and hardworking man who wishes to provide himself and his family with a more prosperous future. This is very important for him and gives him the motivation to look for better ways of life. He lives in a rural area; his home doesn't have electricity. These days that is a necessity, and Hernán is aware how important it is that his family has a better standard of living.

He has decided to approach INTEGRAL for a loan to buy environmentally sound lighting for his home. Renewable energy will provide an efficient and inexpensive solution and is exactly what he needs so that he has light at night in his home.

Hernán Gilberto is very happy and satisfied with the assistance provided by the loan. He promises to pay back the money and at the same time has faith that God will provide his family with a good life.
