A haircut in Sangwali

Rural electricity supplied by conservancies

If you want a nifty Z in your hair, Ocacious Sanmombo is the man to do it. He has been trimming men’s hair since 2002 under a tree in Sangwali village. He started with a pair of scissors and taught himself to cut gent’s hair. With the money he earned, he invested in an electric razor powered by a solar panel, but that didn’t produce enough power. Business was slow. His average was five haircuts a day. Now, thanks to Wuparo Conservancy, Sangwali has electric power. For Sanmombo it meant an opportunity to incease his business.
