Florencio is a 59-year-old farmer who lives with his wife and 21-year-old daughter in a remote village of the Mexican State of Oaxaca. He has decided to improve his family’s living conditions by accessing, for the first time, to a basic electricity service with the installation of Small Solar Home Systems (SSHS) in their house.

This SSHS will provide Florencio’s family with an electricity service during the next 20 years, approximately, that allows them to have 4 additional hours of lighting to use in extending their daily tasks, as well as in having dinner easily or in reading. Funding is asked for financing the 31% of the cost of that SSHS, which will be paid back with the monthly fee that this farmer pays for maintenance services during the first year of operation.
