Blessing Ogbuewu is 34 years and lives with her husband, three children and her sister in Igbudu District, Ikwo Local Government Authority, Ebonyi State, Nigeria. Her husband is a rice farmer and spends most of his day on the farm. Two of her children attend school and her sister helps with house chores and taking care of the last child. Blessing has a stall from where she sells groceries. The money she makes caters for food while proceeds from the farm are mainly used for school fees and building the house. The family lives in a three-roomed house that is neither complete nor connected to the national grid. Blessing has been using a kerosene lamp and candles to light her home at night. She cannot afford a generator or its daily fuel requirement like some of her friends in the village.
