A loan of $150 helped to buy a low-cost energy saving lamp.


Leonides's story

Leónides, forty-six, lives with his partner and their children in their own house. For several years he has earned his living by farming and fishing. He's a modest, determined, and persistent man. He wants a better future for himself and his small family, which is most important to him and impels him to seek better opportunities in life. He lives in a very modest area of the country and his house doesn't have electricity. In these times that's a basic home necessity and Leónides is sure that it's indispensable if his family is to have a better quality of life. That's why he decided to seek a loan from Integral. The loan will allow him to buy a low-cost energy-saving lamp that will provide an effective solution for the home environment because it is priced accessibly and, because it uses renewable energy, it's exactly what he needs to light his house at night. He is really excited and appreciates the support. He assures us that he'll pay it off and at the same time he hopes God will grant his family the full life they deserve.
