Mobilising Saccos to promote solar systems for poverty alleviation in Mwanza region




The project aims at developing cooperation with the Saccos in/around Mwanza to promote solar systems to their members, both for household use and for income generating use (phone charging, hair clipping). In the first instance, Zara Solar Ltd will supply the products to the Saccos. In each Sacco at least one member will be trained as solar technician to be able to install, maintain and repair the systems. The first systems will be installed in cooperation with Zara Solar technicians.
