Meena is optimistic and confident and runs her own business via a Kirana Shop. One wouldn’t believe she got married at a very young age, studied only till 6th Standard and is a mother of 4 kids.
Being a woman entrepreneur, who successfully runs a shop, Meena is our Solar Saheli as well as Krishi Sakhi. She knows the nitty gritties of talking to a customer and understands the importance of clean energy and efficient solutions in our lives, which aide in promoting and selling products.
Sharing her own experience, she proudly narrates a story when some guests were at her home and suddenly the lights went out in the entire village. She quickly switched on her solar powered home lighting system and lit up her house. When asked where she got this electricity from, she proudly told the guests that she is a Solar Saheli and the light is from her own solar powered system.
Meena has worked in deep rural pockets and due to her efforts, more households are now using clean energy products. We are proud of you, Meena!
