Xiomara Francisca's story

Xiomara has four children. Two of her children go to the community school. She says that she wants her children to go to school so that they can define themselves in life. She and her husband work in agriculture. They plant basic grains and coffee. They sell part of what they harvest and keep the rest for household consumption. The community where they live, called El Venado, doesn't have electricity because it is very remote. At night, they use candles, but they want electricity in their home, because using candles is dangerous because if there were a fire, they children could get burned. That is why she wants the loan to improve the whole family's quality of life, especially that of her young children.
