GIZ India: Renewable Energy Supply for Rural Areas (RESRA) Project: assisting lives of women and children

Shrimati Bhagwanti Portay and 11 other women seized the initiative provided by GIZ RESRA project: they started producing and selling ready-to-eat meals. Ever since their village has been provided with electricity from renewable sources, the women have been able to increase their production, as they have bought an electric flour mill. Today they produce 100 ready-to-eat meals a day. On behalf of the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety, GIZ is providing rural areas in India with green energy. A power supply system has already been installed for 26 villages in two Indian states.
