Ji Duma has done a variety of development work in the villages over the past 20 years, including micro-enterprise development. Therefore, they are a perfect candidate to help spread productive uses of PV throughout Mali. Ji Duma will be the enterprise's first, essential customer! Ji Duma will buy locally produced panels from the new micro-enterprise, Afriq-Power. Ji Duma will then implement and spread the solar technology within the villages. They will be able to train villagers how to use PVs in order to generate income. Ji Duma will be the micro-enterprises's customer and support center. The micro-enterprise will have a much greater chance of being stable and successful as a result.
