A loan of $550 helped purchase a solar power system for his home.

Ramon Concepcion's story

Don Ramón was born in the community o Kilaka where he has lived since he was 25 years old when he met his wife and they moved here. From this marriage, he has had three children who all attend school in the community. He says he supports them as much as he can so that they can get an education. Don Ramón is a farmer, he plants sesame and his wife raises pigs in order to earn money. These activities help them to care for their children. He has also been a pastor at a church in the community for the past 4 years and he says he is happy to be serving God. The community where he lives does not have electricity, they use candles at night, but he would like to have lights in his home and so he is applying for a loan in order to purchase a solar power system.
