Eladio’s asking for a loan to buy a solar lamp because the community he lives in nobody has electricity and what he earns is insufficient to do so. The lamp is a charging station with solar panels shaped like a lamp that’s useful for homes in rural zones that don’t have electric power. With this purchase the family will be benefited because they’ll be able to have their own light at night.
