Dionisia Deneisse
Dionisia lives in the community of Charco Seco in the Department of Intibucá Honduras. She is a farmer (potato), age 26 years who lives with her husband and two children. Her husband is a municipal office employee. It is clear that Dionisia works hard to maintain her family and at night, after a hard day of work, the conditions in the house are not very good due to the lack of electricity.
The family currently illuminates their home with kerosene lamps because the electrical utility grid does not reach this rural area. She mentioned that she hopes to improve education of children because they will be able to do their homework with better lighting, and assisting production activities in the home and to improve living conditions for her family, Dionisia is requesting a loan to purchase a complete solar electric system from Soluz Honduras.

More information about this loan

This loan will provide solar electric systems for houses to be illuminated with highly efficient LED lamps.

The systems reduce toxic fumes from kerosene lamps, and also reduce the family’s energy costs by eliminating the cost of kerosene, dry cell batteries and the cost to charge cell phones. Soluz Honduras installs, guarantees, and maintains the system to assure that the benefits will continue for many years, and the solar panel has a 25-year warranty. By supporting this loan, you are helping families access clean energy and reducing their negative impacts on their home environment and surrounding environment.
