Ceidi Antonieta's story

Ceidi was born in the city but at age 2 she was taken to live in the community where she currently lives. At age 6 she went back to the city where she attended elementary and middle school. Years later she went back to the other community to work as a teacher. It was there where she met her husband of 14 years until he passed away. They had four children. Since her husband’s death, she has gotten her children together and worked the land, raising basic grains, coffee, and bananas. She says that she works hard to get ahead with her children and gets her father’s help in the fields. She is asking for a loan to acquire a solar power system so she can have electricity in her house, which will improve her quality of life.
