It sounds like an odd job but charging peoples phones is a source of income and can lead one to sustainable development.
This is a true with Claude Nsengimana, 24, a resident of Kabere centre in Kabere cell, Nyabimata sector of Nyaruguru district who said he earns Rwf15000 a month from charging phones.
“After dropping out of school, I decided to buy a solar panel and be creative with it. That is how I started charging phones and showing films in Kabere Centre,” he explained.
Nsengimana added that an idea struck him after realizing there was no electricity in Kabere yet cell phone owners could move long distances to charge their phones.
“I thought that in a place without electricity, one can make money if solar system is used,” he said.
Nsengimana asserted that charging phones and showing films have improved his life, saying he is capable of providing for his basic needs.
“I plan to build a house. I will not get a bank loan because my job is enough to support the project,” revealed Nsengimana.
One of his customers, Pierre Nzirasanaho said that Nsengimana saved them from walking long distances to access electricity.
“He is of great help to us because we used to walk to Rweru for 40 minutes to charge. But now you come with Rwf100 and go back home with a fully charged phone,” said Nzirasanaho.
Apart from showing them films for entertainment purposes, Nsengimana allows residents to watch news on his TV set.
