Women’s power generator co-operative. The generator was bought a year ago and was stored in Al-Mahatta neighbourhood in Serekaniye. It has a capacity of 900 amperes and it sends electricity to 400 houses from 1-4pm, and then the national electricity is used from 4-9pm. The generator is used again from 9pm until 1am.
Shamsa Fahd Amin, a member of the co-operative, said that in the beginning they were seven participants, including one woman. “With time all the members of the co-operative have become women,” she said. “We are 11 women, we distribute the profit equally amongst ourselves, and now we don’t need men economically.”
