A loan of $100 helped to pay for a small home solar installation.


Raul's story

Raul is a 50-year-old farmer who lives with his wife in a small village of the State of Oaxaca (Mexico) without traditional electrification and out of grid extension plans. In the picture, he was picking up some pieces of equipment of the Small Solar Home System, so-called SSHS, installed in his house. With that SSHS Raul and his wife have, for the first time, electrical lighting in their house to cook and eat dinner, as well as the chance of connecting a radio.
Funding is asked for financing 53% 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.
