Circuito Inteligente JJ manufactures rechargeable devices that generate ambient light for the home using recyclable materials such as batteries and bottles. These materials are easily accessible to the most vulnerable population and the home energy market.
These lighting solutions are developed by low-income youth and women heads of household. According to the manager John Jairo Barrera: "The product has an immediate impact because of its low cost and its great economic and social benefit."
Long-life lights made by Circuito Inteligente JJ reach the most vulnerable households, those which lack access to power. Their prices are economical because their raw material is made of recyclable material. The business model offers diverse possibilities: "Job opportunities can be created for vulnerable households and communities, prison communities or rehabilitation for device assembly."
Their plan for the future is to extend the company's radius of action: "We hope to reach the Community of the Department of Chocó and other sectors far from electrical power services."
