Lázaro's Group's story

Lázaro lives in San Juan Lachao, Oaxaca. He is a 34 year old single father who works hard every day to take care of his two children and give them a better future. For 10 years, his job as a driver is the activity that allows him to earn $450 USD a month, money he must distribute to the maintenance of his home and provide adequate education food and clothing for his children, whom he encourages to study hard in order to assure a better future. He currently has only one light bulb at his house, which is connected to his neighbor’s electricity service; however, the electricity service is often inconsistent, and suffers of constant breakouts. Despite this situation, Lázaro has one goal: buy a solar home system that will help him and his children extend their productive hours a day, something candles cannot provide. Once he has a constant electricity service, he is planning on using this system for his ranch in order to increase his productive activities and generate more income for the benefit of his family.
