A loan of $525 helped to buy solar panels for his home.

Adilio De Jesus's story

Adilio, 65 years old, lives in the village of Los Cerrones. Being a single child, he was not able to go to school, because he had to help his mother with work on the family farm. He lives with his spouse and their children, whom he taught how to farm and how to grow coffee. In his village, there is no electricity, which is why he asks for a loan in order to buy solar panels. Thus, his family's living conditions will improve, he will be able to shell the coffee beans after sunset in his house, and in the morning his wife will be able to prepare food for him.
