A loan of $550 helped to buy a solar power system.


Hayda Isabel's story

Hayda is 58 years old, and is from the community of Punta Ñata. Here she lived with her family until she grew up and met the father of her six children. She separated from her husband several years ago, and so has to work very hard to provide for her younger children, who are still dependent on her. She depends on agricultural work; for example she fattens pigs to sell them. In this way she makes enough to cover her family's basic needs. In her community they still live in the dark, as mains electric power has not arrived there. For this reason she is requesting a loan in order to buy a solar power system for her home.
