Barnabus Bonigawa's story

Residing in Wami Sokoine, Barnabus is a 48-year-old man from Tanzania and he is a father of four dependent children. To support the family, he has been a farmer his entire life. He also has different side jobs in order to supplement the income.

Barnabus spends up to 25% of this income on kerosene, which only provides a very dim light and emits toxic gases. He is determined to change this through acquiring a home solar energy system. This technology would considerably increase the living standard of the whole family. The kids would finally able to do their homework in the evening hours and the parents would save money, which could be spent for more useful purposes than kerosene.
