Ahoi In Group's story
The group Ahoi In was formed by women with similar interests in getting a loan to buy mini solar home lighting systems so that their families stay in comfort even when there is a shortage in power supply in the area after sunset. Tingvah, 45, is the featured member of the group (with her hand raised) who is a daily wage earner. Both she and her husband work as a daily wage earners and have been supporting their family with their humble income. They have five college-going children who are diligent in their studies. They have been supporting their children’s education with much financial difficulty in the hope that they will get government jobs in the near future and will be able to support their parents. Due to frequent failure in power supply in their area, the study hours of the children are disturbed in the evenings and at night. They cannot study their lessons according to their desire and have to shorten their study hours due to frequent power cuts. Since they got the solar home lighting system, the children do not face problems during their study hours anymore and are able to study without any problems and with comfort. As the mother works outside the house during daytime, most of the household chores need to be done mostly in the early morning and evenings. She is also able to perform her household chores with comfort and better environment after dusk. She said it was all thanks to WSDS for lending them such a loan that helped them to live a comfortable and fulfilling life.
