A loan of $100 helped to buy solar lamp.

Eladio's story

Eladio, 59, lives with his wife and six children in his own house but does not have electricity. He’s worked in agriculture for 20 years and his main crops are corn and sesame. His older children help him with the crops and he uses profits earned from his sales to cover some of his household expenses.

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.
