A loan of $350 helped a member to purchase a solar home system that will substitute traditional lighting sources such as firewood and candles.

Natividad's Group's story

Alfonza and Natividad grew up in the community of "El Mesón" in Malinaltepec, a highly marginalized area in the state of Guerrero. Alfonza inherited the trade of harvesting corn and coffee from her parents and she intends to pass on this important knowledge to her own two small children. She lives two hours away from the nearest town and she has never had access to electricity. As an alternative source, Alfonza asks her children to collect fire wood and "ocote" from the hill and bring it home for them to light their evenings. By purchasing a solar home system, Alfonza and her children will be able to spend more time together. Her children will also be able to do their homework better at night. For Alfonza, being able to pay for this solar home system will be one of her proudest moments.
