A loan of $675 helped to buy a solar system.

Cristhiam Ridoniel's story

Cristhiam is 31 years old and lives in the community of San Remigio. Because of his parents' hard work, he was able to finish primary school in the same community. After leaving school, he started working on farms near to where he lives and later he got a job with a shrimp company that is somewhat close to his community. He worked at that company for a couple of years and acquired experience. Years later, with a group of coworkers, they decided to create a shrimp farm cooperative which is duly registered with the name of Fuente de Vida. It is made up of 10 people. All of them work in the cooperative and divide the business' profits. This is how they make their living and with God's help it is going well for them. He wants to improve his family's quality of life by bringing electricity to their home, since in his community there is no electrical power. That is why he wants this loan to buy a solar system for his humble home.
