Lushomo lost her husband to covid 19 in 2021 and she was left with 5 children to take care of.
She had to figure out ways to pay for her children school fees and also provide shelter and food for them.
She heard about the women entreprenuership program run by Kukula Solar and attended the trainings and was given a starter kit of 26 lights. She sold the 26 lights in hours and managed to make to make a $30.
Today Lushomo makes an average of $140 monthly, enough to buy food, pay rentals in a 3 roomed house and save for her children education.
With your continued support, many women like Lushomo would benefit from this program.
Thanks so much for your support and looking forwaard to your continued support in 2024.
With an opportunity to sale solar lamps to her own people in Songwe Village of Katete District if Eastern Province, Tizione has seen an increase in her income which she now can use to support her children's education, and health and even improve nutrition at home.
Before this opportunity, Tizione was just a housewife with no income to her name. She learned of this opportunity from a Kukula Solar staff and how selling lights to her own people can change not only the customer's quality of life but also her life by increasing her income.
She jumped on the opportunity and, looking back, Tizione never regrets the decision she made.
With a monthly income of $150 from the sales of the lights and other products introduced by Kukula Solar, Tizione has an income to her name.. something that has brought her self-confidence and pride.
With your continued support we are working to ensure more women have opportunities to earn a decent and acceptable income to be able to support their families and community.
Carol joined our program to distribute solar lanterns to her own people in the village who were still using kerosene, battries and candles so that she can not only earn an acceptable income but also help her communitie transition to a more cleaner, healther and safer mode of lighting.
After working for 4 months Carol now earns a total of $378 monthly in commission enough to support her family and also reinvest in her small business.
Together we are impacting lives of women like Carol who are passionate about being the change leaders in their own communities and to their own people while earning an acceptable income for themselves and family.
