Solar Home Systems 18
With a solar loan of EUR 10,600 Isaya and 17 others will enjoy light in the entire village.
Isaya Saidimu Kahenja of Olorika village has a family of twelve children so one can imagine his lighting bill and especially when using a generator. The cost and also time consumed going the long distances daily to buy the fuel is a challenge but has to be done. To go around this the family has agreed to be preparing meals and finish other evening chores early before switching off the generator by 9pm just to save on cost beside denying the children ample time to study at night.
The acquisition of the solar home system will provide sustainable source of energy thereby improving the living standard of the entire family. The savings from otherwise daily fuel cost can now go towards other most needed development opportunities like business and farming.
This is a typical story for many families in this area where Isaya comes from.
|Company name||Solar Home Systems 18|
BnF focuses on sustainable energy projects in rural Kenya, offering households a 12-month payment plan to purchase a solar home system. The system enables clients to generate sufficient energy to power many basic necessities such as lights, radios, televisions, and other essential appliances. Solar home systems reduce reliance on polluting and health-threatening fuels such as kerosene, firewood, and coal for families' lighting and cooking needs.
Electricity opens new economic opportunities for families, enabling household incomes to grow progressively. It provides access to information and entertainment, allowing the children to spend time studying in the evenings and empowering women to engage more in household and local-level decision-making. It stands to reason that entire rural communities' livelihoods benefit from access to clean energy as their productivity, efficiency, and health prospers.
