Sarah's story

Sarah is a 52-year-old widow and mother of four children. She works as a Community Development Coordinator with the Luwero Diocese, helping people in her area to improve their health and well-being. She has been involved with Solar Sister for a couple of months. She uses her extra income from selling solar products to help her pay school fees and buy household items.

She likes being a Solar Sister, because it adds to her income and has helped her to minimize her own expenditures on fuel for lighting. Being a Solar Sister has also made many new friends for her, as there are currently eight other Solar Sister entrepreneurs in her district. Sarah's dreams for the future are that she will continue to earn money for her family, and that her children will be well-educated and healthy.
