Trinidad's Group's story

Trinidad and Aristeo live in the state of Veracruz, in the beautiful community of Chontla.

Trinidad is 24 years old and lives in a single-room house along with his beloved wife and their three year old. All his life, Trinidad worked in farming as a way of living, his father taught him and his brothers everything there is to know about reaping and harvesting. His job as a peasant allows him to earn a monthly income of $270 USD, but his earnings may vary because they depend on the rain season. Trinidad is a hardworking man, and when his little boy came into his life he set a goal: work as hard as he can to improve his child´s quality of life.

Trinidad´s community lacks public services, and in order to light his house during nighttime he uses a diesel lamp. He refills the lamp weekly in the nearest town, one hour away from Chontla. Trinidad thinks that diesel lamps are expensive and hazardous, and that’s why he wishes to purchase a solar home system. He believes it will improve his household's quality of life and even allow him and his wife extend their productive hours during nighttime, so they can increase their earnings and offer a better future to their children.
