Sahabuddin Molla is a tailor by profession. His work requires precision; something that he says was not always possible with a kerosene lamp. He says there was constant smoke which would irritate the eyes, and make working for long periods of time difficult. He also used to be afraid of upsetting the lamp and damaging his goods. He used your loan on Milaap to buy solar lamp. When I asked him how this impacted his life, he said that he can work longer hours now, without experiencing any eye strain. This means that he can get more work done in a short period of time and thus, his income increased.
Solar lanterns are changing the way of living for communities in rural India.
