Faisal Mahmud

Abul Kalam Sikdar, Bangladesh

“When I opened my dispensary at Dhuron Bazaar … we didn’t have any electricity there, so it was not possible for us to preserve the medicines which need refrigeration. … When the solar mini-grid power plant opened in 2014 … I took the connection. It was the best thing that had happened in Kutubdia for a long time. I took the connection in my home and bought a TV. Previously, my family needed to go to the market to watch Bangladesh cricket matches. We now can watch those in our own home.”
