Sakaria's story

Sakaria lives in northern Namibia with his siblings, mother, and grandmother. In Namibia, roughly half the population lives without electricity. Because of this, most people there spend a large amount of their small income on candles, gas, and batteries for their energy and lighting needs.

By starting a small-scale solar energy business, Sakaria is able to offer his community members a safer, more affordable, and renewable way to meet their energy needs. Most of Sakaria’s customers pay off their solar unit in just three months, and the product will last them five years (and comes with a warranty!).

"I love my business because I am able to support my family and save money for my siblings’ education while providing good quality products," Sakaria says.

Will you help Sakaria and his community to adapt to solar energy?
