Customer Stories 

99% of d.light customers rate their product as a good value for money and would recommend d.light to a friend

Mataisia Town near Kano, Nigeria

Bala Suleman

Bala learned about d.light lanterns from his friend.
“When I saw the way it was constructed and the quality of the plastic, I was completely convinced of the great value it can bring and bought two lamps straightaway for my stall.”
Bala used his d.light to increase productivity on his chicken farm. Normally, each chicken produces 10-15 eggs a month. By using his d.light to feed the chickens at night, Bala boosted productivity to 30 eggs a month. He now owns seven d.light lanterns, saving money on kerosene and batteries.


Janendra Singh

There is a huge difference using the kerosene lantern and the d.light lantern. There is no pollution… I have thrown away my kerosene lanterns.
Janendra, a farmer in rural India, lives in a village without regular electricity. His family relied on kerosene lamps for lighting their home, but it was very smoky and blackened their home and clothes with soot. Now, the family’s d.light lantern has replaced the kerosene lamps. “Because we don’t need to spend any money on kerosene, we save around 200 rupees a month.” Janendra’s daughter previously relied on kerosene to study, which was dangerous and produced poor-quality lighting. Now, she can study longer, and more efficiently.

Daw Tin Tin Mya

Daw Tin Tin Mya, a midwife and nurse in Myanmar, purchased a d.light lantern to aid her while she delivered babies.
As a result, the expectant mothers in Shwebo Su village no longer give birth in darkness. Daw can now deliver babies successfully with safe, bright light, and can also aid sick patients at night more easily. Her patients find the light of the d.light lantern she brings with her very comforting.
