Our May 2017 entrepreneur: Suriya in India

Amount needed: US $200

The below summary is provided for our use by Suriya and Womentum:

Suriya lives in a village in rural South India who hopes to one day saving enough money to put her 6th grade son through high school. Yet, the current income her husband makes through intense manual labor can barely get them by day to day. Now she has taken matters into her own hand and began exploring opportunities with solar power. She soon realized that she can build a micro-business from selling solar lanterns in her village and earn a commission from that. Simultaneously, Suriya’s will be able to provide for her family as well as provide electricity to communities in India that are off-grid and have unpredictable energy sources.

Join a global community of women who travel the world and help support Suriya’s business with your membership.
