A loan of $100 helped to purchase a solar lamp.

Anonymous's story

The client is 23 years old, and lives with her husband and their two children in their own home. They do not have electricity. She works on foot, selling pan dulce [sweet bread] and French bread in the different neighborhoods near her home.

The client is seeking a loan for the purchase of a solar lamp, which is shown in the photograph. No one in her community has electric light, and with what she earns, she cannot afford it either. The lamp is a charging station with solar energy panels that form a light, which is used to serve homes in rural areas that do not have electricity.

This purchase will be beneficial to her and her family, as they will be able to have their own light at night.
