A loan of $600 helped to purchase a solar power system.


Francisco Javier's story

Francisco is from the community of Tiguilotada. He reports that he still remembers that when he started elementary school it was very difficult, because the school was far away, and his parents were in a bad financial situation. His parents always fought hard to make income to be able to provide food for the family and take care of the rest of their needs. Thus, with a great deal off effort he was able to finish primary school, and then he began working in the fields with his father.

He now has his own family. He lives with his wife and two children, who are already grown up. With a great deal of effort he has been able to provide them with a better life. In his home he does not have electricity - they live this way since conventional energy is not yet available in the community. He wants to use this loan to purchase a solar power system and install it in his home.
