G.s El Trapiche #1 Group's story

Francisco is 57 years old. He lives in the south of Honduras with his children and his wife who supports their commercial activity. His business is the production and sale of grains. He has been doing this work for 30 years in the community where he lives. Francisco’s business is located at a strategic point, where many people pass by, and because it is in the center of the community it is in high demand. Francisco’s plans for the future is to continue growing his business and to give a better education to his children in order for them to have better life opportunities.

Francisco and the other members of the group need a loan in order to buy a solar panel because his community does not have electrical service and this would help them improve their living conditions a little more and that of their families. They are happy because by obtaining the solar panel they can do many more activities while they are contributing towards caring for the environment.
