Henry and his wife operate a grocery stall where they sell snacks, cooking oil, soap, and other household consumables. In order to expand and grow their business via initiating Productive Uses of Energy (PUEs), they resolved to operate a phone charging centre primarily for charging phones at a fee. As a result of this, the couple acquired the Barefoot Power kit – Connect Charge Mobile which charges up to 6 phones at the same time.

This kit comes with one light which Henry uses as a security light not only to light up the exterior of his house, but also to provide light for the stall. The stall now stays open longer up to about 9:00pm which enables him to serve late night customers. Henry says, “I acquired this system just 3 weeks ago but people are already coming here to charge their phones. When their phones are charged, they are connected to their friends and families and they can receive news.” Many of his customers are his neighbours who are also not connected to the national grid. But even those who are connected face frequent power cuts, sometimes lasting up to two days at a time. Henry believes that the solution to this problem has arrived.
