Raúl lives with his wife and four small children in a community that does not have electricity. He completed first year of secondary school in the community school but dropped out when he started to help his parents and siblings with the agricultural work. He met his wife working in the coffee plantations and he now works in a coffee plantation near the hamlet he lives in. He wants the loan to buy a small solar system to light his house and avoid using kerosene lamps and candles that are dangerous for his family.
