For years, electricity seemed like an impossible dream in most rural areas in Kenya. “Life was difficult”, says Me Atang, owner of a small business in Kibera, in the slums part of the country. “Customers would come after dark and the light of the candles was not enough.”
“Our village was in the darkness”, adds Mathabang Hlekiso, a mother of 5. “Sometimes we couldn’t afford to buy paraffin for the lamps. We couldn’t charge our phones, we couldn’t send urgent messages. It was difficult for the children to study”
