Kenya: A story from a farmer
Kitsao is a 68-year-old man living in the village Mamba in Mombasa, Kenya with his wife and 14 children. His wife is a homemaker and some of his children are still in school. The family’s main source of light was kerosene and paraffin. Kitsao has no formal education and is the main income provider in his household with his agricultural business. As a farmer, he is dependent on a functional water pump irrigation that runs smoothly in order for his vegetables, such as onions and tomatoes, to grow. Before he became one of SUNami’s customers, he was using a diesel-generator for his water pump irrigation that often failed due to the high amount of power needed. When the diesel- generator failed, he either had to buy water from the neighbors or used a rope and container to pull water out of the borehole manually. Kitsao became aware of SUNami Solar’s solar panels and appliance packages from a sales rep in a neighboring village. In May 2018 he got his SUNami solar pump installed, and his business has been booming ever since. He is impressed by the capabilities of the solar system. “The solar panel from SUNami Solar hasgiven me and my family a much simpler life” Kitsao Kalume Kadhengi (68).
His life has changed significantly due to the efficient appliance. Kitsao can
now sell water tand vegetables to his neighbors. He pumps water from the 25
meters deep borehole with SUNami’s water pump and stores the water in a
water tank. Thereafter, the water flows to the farm from the tank, and he does
not have to harvest rainwater anymore. His family also benefits from the service of charging their mobile phones and they enjoy light in their home in the evenings. His children are able to read and do their homework in a healthy
