Mariam lives together with her husband, her two kids and her sister in law in suburban Bamako. Mariam has high blood pressure and her kids has asthma, so to cook with fire is a problem for all of them. She normally cooks with gas to minimize these problems, but when there is a shortage of gas she needs to use charcoal. With a SolarBora unit this won’t be necessary.
“The possibility to also use the unit for business – for example making and selling ice – is perfect. I could also use the electricity to iron the clothes of the family, that would have saved me 6000 CFA only this month. ”
(6000 CFA ≈ 11 USD)
