A woman starts a fire in preparation for cooking her family's supper. It used to be that she had to do this in the afternoon when there was still daylight. But since the installation of a solar-powered electrical system on April 3 in her house (and nine other households in her neighborhood up in the hills of Barangay Begong, Tigbao, Zamboanga del Sur) she could do this and other chores well into the night. The installation of solar powered units was the initiative of a local women farmers' association. MindaNews photo by BJ Patino
