“Hilaria was one of the earliest Solar Sister entrepreneurs in Tanzania. She is wonderful example of a strong woman who lives Solar Sister’s values. She has not only improved her and her family’s life by being a Solar Sister, but also has been a leader to make sure that other women in her community benefit from the ripple effect of Solar Sister’s green business opportunity.”

– Neha Misra
Solar Sister’s Chief Collaboration Officer


Halima is bold and determined woman who is excited to have the opportunity to bring light to her community, and to build her own business.

“I decided to be Solar Sister entrepreneur because I like to work with community, especially women. Also I wanted to bring positive changes in my community.”

– Halima Mdee
