International NGOs and community-based organisations in Kenya, Malawi, Tanzania and Zambia have created a micro-franchise named Sunny Money, which recruits, trains and supports a growing network of solar entrepreneurs in East Africa, especially deaf and disabled people, helping them build and sell solar kits to power lights, radios and mobile phones. 
During the 1970s, the country began sliding into a poverty from which it has not recovered. Zambia's total foreign debt before HIPC completion exceeded $6 billion in 2000. The average per capita income is US $800 (World Bank, 2007). 51% of the population are reportedly living on less than one dollar per day.
