Meet the Sakhis - Clean Energy Women Entrepreneurs!
Uma Shitole
“I want to make villages cleaner, brighter and healthier”
Uma, 28, is proud that she is contributing to India’s goal of creating cleaner, solar villages. Once busy managing daily chores and running a small tailoring business, Uma had bigger dreams that found expression when she became a clean energy entrepreneur.As a member of the ‘Healthy Households’ pilot program with PATH, she aggressively worked with Panchayat bodies in the village. By creating Gram Sabhas, the village was able to maximize clean energy solutions and build toilets, which bridged the gap between households and toilets for over 100 families. Correlating healthy households and markets to her business, Uma, has been able to reach a mark of Rs. 20000 per month in sales of toilets and clean energy products.

Believing that she is not only earning, but also fulfilling a social responsibility, Uma is proud of her accomplishments as an independent woman. Her husband appreciates her work and gives her the support required to grow her business, take risks, and do things differently.
