Smail goes by the name of "Pastor Smail." He is the minister of a local church in a small community named "Fond Blanc" about 2 hours from Port-au-Prince, the capital of Haiti. He is also the principal of a school within the community. In this community there is no access to electricity so the people use "lamp tèt gridap, candles, etc," which are not good for their health. Pastor Smail realizes that the Eneji Pwop products are not only better for the people's health, but also save the people money. So he wants to help his community by selling the Eneji Pwop products (Powapak & Sunking Pro), but he also will improve his economic situation.
