The Veracruz Coast Group 3's story

Benigno is a hard working family father that lives in the coast of El Raudal, Veracruz. From his childhood, he learned from his father and grandfather to love and take care of the food family business in a "Palapa" (an open-sided beach front restaurant made from dry palm leaves), his ancestors build generations ago, and that he proudly manages today along with a group of "Palaperos" (group of people that work in a "Palapa").

As long as he can remember, Benigno has been using battery lamps to illuminate his "Palapa" so he could be able to extend the business productive hours and attract more tourists. However, the batteries he relies on are expensive and don´t provide enough light. Therefore, even at his 58 years of ages, Benigno wants his family business to grow and be more prosper by buying a solar home system that will allow him to light his "Palapa". These will also mean he´s going to stop spending money on batteries, finish his productive activities pass sunset, effectively improving his business and offering more security to his costumers.
