A loan of $525 helped a member to purchase a solar home system that will replace the use of candles.


Luis Alberto Group's story

Aaron, José Ismael, and Carlos have dedicated their lives to the harvest of “chigua,” corn, and beans in the community of “La Florida,” which is a small village in the state of Campeche. Through hard work, this group of men will be able to acquire a clean energy source through solar home systems. Aaron is 63 years old and has always worked as a peasant in the state of Campeche in order to provide for the 5 members of his family. Working in the fields and the countryside is almost a family trade, since all members dedicate a considerable amount of time to the harvest of beans, corn and bananas. They consider themselves lucky because they own a small piece of land that allows them to cultivate goods and generate some income. Through hard work, they were able to purchase a solar home system that has not been enough for their needs since it only has one light bulb. By purchasing the new solar home system, they intend to charge their new cellphones and finally have the ability to communicate with relatives or be contacted if there is an emergency. Also, with two light bulbs they will be able to have better lighting quality, which will translate to a better sense of security. Aaron expressed that, “the possibility of charging a cellphone will give access to communication to my family - something I never thought I could provide.”
