A loan of $5,800 helped a member to buy a solar panel for her home.

G.s El Barro Group's story

Matilde is 41 years old, the mother of three children, and lives with her partner. Her main source of income is coffee cultivation, and she has been doing this for more than four years. Matilde sells her product to intermediaries in the city of Trojes, which provides her with decent earnings that allow her to cover her household expenses and debts.

Matilde is requesting this loan to buy a solar panel for her home. She is requesting this loan through her group. She and her fellow group members hope that this investment will allow them to improve their quality of life by obtaining renewable energy, and at the same time allow them to help look after the environment.

One of Matilde's dreams is to have electricity in her home, and she hopes that this project will help with that.

Dionisia and Ana have both been earning a living for several years by raising livestock. Oscar Manuel and Santos have both been earning a living through coffee cultivation for several years.
