350 households electrified with a 20wp solar system each, as our first solar sector project, with
the loan fund from Ethiopian Rural Electrification Fund, facilitated through the Development Bank of
Ethiopia. Yirgachefe Coffee Farmers Union gave us a bank Guarantee to the bank to access the
fund and systems installed to its members around Yirgachefe town, Edido area.

It was a good experience as the first project and a learning process. Many systems failed within
three months as the battery, panel, and load are unbalanced. We do technical adjustments
through time and got experience in handling projects, demonstrated for awareness creation,
and used as a success story for our future growth.
