Aguacatal Group's story

Teresita, Jesús and América form a group of three neighbors that live in Aguacatal, Campeche. Aguacatal is a community of immigrants who re-located to this region to find better opportunities, however they do not have adequate services in their community. Teresita, Jesús and América each represent a family and are interested in acquiring a solar home system on credit. Teresita is 40 years old and lives with her husband and her two grandsons in a little household that has been in her family for four generations. During her childhood, her father introduced Teresita into the family business of lemon harvesting. Now Teresita and her husband are the ones in charge of running the family business. Fortunately the income they earn from selling lemons is enough for the maintenance of her household and her family, but still Teresita hasn't been able to get access to the electric grid. A friend of hers allows them to use her electric hanging wires to get light during night, but Teresita knows this is a dangerous act and doesn’t want her husband or either of her grandsons to get hurt when they need light. That's why Teresita dreams about purchasing a solar home system with her life savings to help her family. By doing this, her beloved family members can stop risking their lives every time they need light during the nighttime.
