In January 2019, MDC began distributing solar home-lighting systems to individual families.
These systems include a solar panel, battery, three lights and cell phone charging station. People value and care for what they invest in, so MDC makes the systems available on a three-year rent-to-own basis, with rent payments reinvested in a range of community needs. We plan to make solar lighting available deep in the district population of 6000 households. The home-lighting kits are distributed and maintained by MDC’s business manager and a young technician.
