Hilaria Choco became part of a credit union to finance access to electricity for her family. She lives in Aguacate, a remote village in the district of Toledo. Her children made good use of electricity to study and do their homework. Some 160 kilometres away, in Dandriga, Jeneve Pratt breeds sheep and benefits from the services of another credit union.
