A loan of $15,000 helped to replace diesel power generators with solar plants for uninterrupted access to clean water.


Sidi's story

Sidi is the owner and founder of CDS, a Mauritanian company that has been providing energy and potable water access to Mauritanian villages since 2010. CDS’s objective is to supply all rural areas with reliable clean water access through eco-friendly solutions.

Sidi used to set up a diesel power generator in his potable water distribution process. But, this system was highly detrimental to the environment. Moreover, with this kind of system, the cost to provide clean water depends on the oil price, which has been skyrocketing over the past few years. Considering all those issues, Sidi has developed a new solution he would like to implement for all the equipment, starting with the village of Wouloumbouni. He intends to replace diesel power generators with solar plants for uninterrupted access to clean water.

Sidi is asking for a $15,000 loan to purchase and implement this new solution in Wouloumbouni, at the border with Senegal. Thanks to your help, Sidi will be able to provide continued access to clean water to the 3,000 inhabitants of Wouloumbouni, with eco-friendly solutions!
