Dan Zari is a tailor within his community. Because Nigerians are festive, Dan Zari’s business is one that is constantly in demand, however, for years he was not able to produce as much as he had the willingness and capacity to due to lack of stable electricity.
Dan Zari also owns a second tailoring shop within the community that is managed by his children.
Due to the cost of electricity, Dan Zari previously only operated his tailoring business during peak demand season such as Sallah and Christmas because he could charge customers more to be able to afford petrol for generator.
Winock installed a 1kVA unit for Dan Zari in 2018 and he now operates his business full time thereby significantly increasing his income and improving his family’s livelihood.
