A loan of $4,625 helped a member to buy a solar energy system for his house.


G.s El Porvenir Group's story

Eduardo is 69 years old. He is the father of three children and lives at home with his wife. His main activity is coffee growing and he is also an active coffee broker in the area. He is a well known person in his field of work, and for his honesty, with more than 35 years dedicated to this type of economic activity.

Eduardo is asking for a loan to buy a solar energy system for his home because in his community there is no electricity service. He hopes that this investment will help improve his quality of life a bit and that of his family and at the same time fulfill his dream of having light in his home.

One of Eduardo’s dreams is to provide a good professional education for his children and to improve living conditions for his family and the help he receives from the loan will help him towards achieving his dreams and also with the solar energy system he hopes to contribute to the environment as the other members of the group do.
