Florencia's Group's story

Florencia is 40 years old and the mother of 5 small children. She lives in the community of "El Mesón" in Malinaltepec, a highly marginalized area located in the state of Guerrero. She is part of a strong community where she interacts with Nestor and Angela, both heads of families that live in "El Mesón." Florencia, Nestor and Angela have known each other for years and they all share the complications of having a poor and deficient energy service.

Florencia has a little rural shop, where she makes a regular income of $10 USD a day. Whenever the formal grid service fails (which is very often), Florencia is unable to carry on with her sales and therefore she loses clients and money. By purchasing a solar home system, Florencia will be able to open her little rural shop and continue to offer products to her customers. This will increase her income and improve the standard of living for her 5 children. Florencia has also expressed that having access to a clean energy source will help her children do their homework without the use of candles. The entire family is excited by the possibility of having access to this technology.
