One of our first customers, Grace, started using our products to grow her business. Grace and her family have a small farm behind their home in Arusha. They opened a small shop at the front of their house to sell produce and other goods to their neighbors.
With solar technology, Grace is able to keep her shop open an extra four hours each night. This can generate an extra four dollars of income each day which is a significant increase where typical earnings are under a dollar per day. She also makes a tidy sum charging phones for customers who don’t have power in their homes. The community can gather to listen to news or enjoy music on her solar-powered radio and now Grace offers meals as well.
