Based on the current trends of uptake of Alternate Energy Product (solar lamp) in an existing project of Care Pakistan, this project carried out pilot testing of creation of an entire network of small commission based sales agents (focus of women entrepreneurs). Considering future sales, introduction of new alternate energy products, and expanding geographical penetration of the market, a concerted effort was done to create awareness and carry out subsequent training of sales agents after-sale service. The aim was to create and increase the income potential of marginalized rural community members.
