"Saving lives just got a little easier with a well-lit drug store." Dorcus, who operates Faith Drug shop has a reason to be proud. She can keep the drug shop open longer so that people who need medication later in the night can access it. Ever since she bought 2 solar lanterns: Barefoot Go, her drug store can stay open till 11.00 p.m.
Dorcus is also happy to let some of her customers charge their phones with Barefoot Go which is one of the key function of this product. The lanterns also provide clean and bright light which is befitting for a drug store where hygiene should be maintained. This was not the case before when she used a kerosene lamp.
Dorcus said that she has also been able to save money she used to use for purchasing kerosene. From a litre of kerosene a week to zero. Barefoot GO, Solar Lantern and Phone Charging, solutions for underserved electricity communities.
