A loan of $500 helped to buy a home solar power system.


Bernardino's story

Bernardino, 48, has lived in a rural community with no electricity for more than 40 years. He’s worked on a farm doing productive work for the last six years. At the house on the farm he works at there is a solar panel. He’d like to have a solar panel at his house so that his family can improve their quality of life. Ten family members including three children attending school live in his house and they would greatly benefit by being able to do their homework at night and being able to watch certain television programs. He wants the loan so that he can live differently with his children and family, free of darkness, and no longer using oil lamps.
