A loan of $725 helped to buy a solar energy system.


Martha Lorena's story

Lorena was born in a community close to El Sauce. She got married when she was 18, and they have five children. With great effort, she and her husband have acquired some land and have built a small house for them to live in. Her source of income to support her family is growing basic grains, having a few heads of cattle, and raising pigs. The community where she lives does not have electricity. She wishes to have light in her house in order to be able to help her children with their homework at night. This is because they both work during the daytime. Therefore, she is requesting the loan to be able to buy a solar panel and improve her family’s quality of life.
