After long days of work at home cooking, cleaning and taking care of her husband and kids, Josefina goes to work in the evening on her sewing machine to fix and make clothes for sale so she can earn extra income. She used to work under the dim and flickering light of a candle, which was very difficult and irritated her eyes.
Today, Josefina can enjoy the bright light of her solar lamp and works comfortably on sewing clothes. Her son Juan also really enjoys spending time with his mom while she works!
In addition to increasing her family’s income, she also saves at least $15-$20 a month because she does not need to buy candles or batteries anymore. She saves this money and uses it to provide food, clothes and education for her family. With the power of the sun, she lights up her home and provides a better future for her family.
