Establishing solar lights assembly, repair and sales in Burundi

This project aims to introduce a new business model for the production and sales of solar lamps in Burundi. The lamps to be introduced, developed by the German partner Solux, will be assembled locally, thereby decreasing the cost while maintaining the high quality. The project will not only contribute to the solution of the lighting problem in Burundi but will also create new jobs in ‘green’ economy, bringing new knowledge and technology to the country. The lamps will be distributed through a distribution network in 4 provinces during the pilot, offering purchase on credit to households and institutional clients.
