A loan of $450 helped a member buenaventura and his group buy a solar home system to have reliable light.


Buenaventura's Group's story

Buenaventura, his cousin Cirilo and Marcelo live in a small community called El Paraíso in Santa María Tiltepec, Oaxaca. They each provide for a family of six and work in the field cultivating corn. Everyday they must travel to their workplace, more than an hour away walking distance, where they have a small field house where they take care of their crops. Buenaventura and his eldest son stay over to sleep at this house in the field, where they have no electricity supply. They rely on candles and have no place to charge their cell-phone, their only means of communication for emergencies and to stay in touch with their families during that days they are working. With your loan they will be able to have reliable LED lighting through a solar home system and charge their cell-phones to be able to communicate with their families.

In this group: Buenaventura , Cirilo, Marcelo
