Operation and finance concept for a fishing cooperative in Tanzania

Together with Caritas Tanzania we developed a concept for fishermen in the region Mbeya and Rukwa to operate and finance a photovoltaic ice maker.

The principal idea of the project is to introduce an efficient solar cooling facility for fish at the shore of lake Rukwa/ Songwe district in South Tanzania. And, by this way, to establish a continuous cooling chain and to increase the income of the fishermen significantly.

For the operation and the funding of this facility a cooperative can be founded. The concept figures out the way the operation and financing of such a cooperative.
