Malathi Sardhar and group live in a region where powercuts are very common. This would mean that they had to rely on kerosene lamps a lot of the time. She said that their children were forced to complete their homework in this light, and the smoke would be a constant irritation. When I asked her how things had improved after she purchased a solar lantern with your loan on Milaap, she replied that things were a lot easier now. She did not have to worry about the light causing eye-strain for her children. Also, she said that she saved a lot on her kerosene consumption.
