Light is about hope and opportunity. Light is also about security. In remote agricultural communities like Ikpamodo in Enugu State, light can make all the difference. Eucharia believes solar lights saved her life.
Eucharia is from a small rural community in Enugu, where people are mostly agrarian, planting rice, cassava, yams and also cash crops such as oil palm and cashews. The Oji River Power Station in Enugu State used to supply electricity to all of Eastern Nigeria but has not since been revived. Many communities hear to Eucharia have no access to power at all.
Eucharia became a Solar Sister entrepreneur in March 2017. “My husband likes that I am doing Solar Sister and encouraged me to the buy solar lights for our own home.”
