SunEPI provided implementation services and training to Solar Electric Light Funds's continuing project work in Benin. This project utilized solar pumping technology to move water from a stream and a ground well to water tanks to then be used for drip irrigation. The irrigation system provided the basis for several hectares of high density vegetable farming. The produce is then used first to improve the nutrition of the villages and then as a basis for an entrepreneurship to help the people earn more income. SELF is continuing this project and envisions more villages, and larger services in the villages.
