Solar Sister Business in a Bag

Solar Sister empowers women in Africa with economic opportunity and vital access to life transforming clean energy technologies. It combines the breakthrough potential of solar technology with the deliberately woman-centered direct sales network to bring light, hope and opportunity to even the most remote communities in rural Africa. Investing in women is not only the right thing to do, it is the smart thing to do. Solar Sister creates sustainable businesses, powered by smart investment in women entrepreneurs. In doing so, it is ushering in a new kind of green energy revolution for Africa.

This campaign will provide “business-in-a-bag” to 10 Solar Sister Entrepreneurs who will bring the benefits of clean energy technology to their communities in un-electrified areas of Uganda. Each “business-in-a-bag” empowers a woman entrepreneur with inventory, training and marketing support to build a sustainable business, providing access to clean energy to thousands of customers and durable income for the entrepreneur.

Impact

Over 20,000 people with access to clean energy technology.
