Olman’s story

Olman is 21 years old and despite being very young, he is a man and a father of a responsible family who cultivates basic grains and raises cattle. With this, he has been able to give sustenance to his wife, Iris, and their young children. However, he aspires to be able to give his family the best life conditions possible so that his children can be raised in a healthy environment and can have the best education posible. This is a little difficult due to his community of Atlantida, Hondurase where they live. There is no access to electricity, and they have to light their come with kerosene lamps that are dangerous for your health. For these reasons, Olman is seeking a loan from Soluz Honduras to finance buying a solar home system that will allow him to have better life conditions.
