Bob Kokonya is a farmer in Kenya. He earns a little over a dollar a day. There is no electricity in the area of rural Kenya where he lives, so most people resort to burning kerosene. Bob's family was spending the majority of his income lighting their house.
Bob's life was recently transformed by solar power. He bought a Sunny Money Ravi, a solar powered LED light (with mobile phone charging) created by the development charity SolarAid. Now Bob can invest his income in his farm, in other basic needs, or in more solar power.
