Mrs. Alice Banda and her company AR General Dealers raises chickens from 1 day to 6 weeks and sells them locally.  Over the last 3 months she’s built a new khola (chicken coop – see previous blog for more information on the building) and has started ramping up her business.

The business makes use of Solar PV lighting to power the building and provide lighting (keeps them feeding) and some point, there are plans to provide some heating through solar PV as well.

She’s expecting a payback period for the REEF grant of about a year – not bad!
