A loan of $575 helped to buy a solar system and to install it at his house.


Rodrigo Antonio's story

Rodrigo, age 29, says that he completed all of elementary school thanks to the support and sacrifice of his parents. Afterwards, he says that he went to live on his maternal grandparents’ farm. That is where they taught him to work the land and to care for livestock, among other things that are now very useful to him. They have allowed him to earn a living and have his home.

He lives with a wife and his three children, who are currently attending the community school. They do not have light at their house because conventional energy has not come to this community. That is the reason that he is requesting a loan to buy a solar system and to install it at his house.
