ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT

The challenges

Moving out of poverty is arises in 75% of cases through individual initiatives (17% of initiatives in the field of agriculture and 60% excluding agriculture) – according to the report “Moving out of poverty.”

Access to modern energy services allows local income generation by fostering the emergence of new businesses, improving productivity and freeing time for economic activities.

The solutions

1Irrigating crops and control water all year round

The construction of an irrigation network for market gardening has an effect on increasing the quantities produced and thus the income of farmers. It also promotes self-sufficiency in the population.

2Electrifying agro-pastoral farms

Electricity can power machines and refrigerators to store perishable meat products and fruit and facilitates their marketing.

3Supplying food and craft processing machinery

Access to electricity will enable the use of machines for the processing of raw materials such as cassava or making soap and oil. These products can then be commercialized and generate income. The arrival of electricity also opens the door to new activities and contributes to the strengthening or the emergence of an artisanal culture, creating jobs and local resources.

4Increasing working hours

With the light provided by electricity, a shop can be open for about two hours more per day. Night-time shops may also develop as evening markets.

5Diversifying economic activities

Access to electricity allows a community centred on agriculture to develop new activities, such as sewing workshops or small electrical businesses.

6Freeing up time with access to running water

Often, access to water requires long trips to the well and a robust manual pump. The electrification of wells or boreholes with solar energy reduces women’s labour and allows them to focus on other economic, educational or recreational activities. The installation of standpipes at various locations in the village provides direct access to clean water.
