We had a joyous celebration of our second foundation day on 29th July’2022 at Mon, Nagaland. It was
celebrated with office decorations, cake cutting, team reflections on our two-year journey of growth
followed by a sumptuous team lunch. It was indeed a milestone that we achieved with support from our
partners and well-wishers. We are all committed to keep the growth momentum on!
In conjunction with NABARD and Smart Power India [SPI], the MRDF team has just installed the first three-phase productive load in the state of Nagaland. The 7.5 HP rice huller installed on the 27th of January in Longkei village, Mon district, was powered completely by the village’s recently installed solar mini-grid. The consistent and high quality electricity provided by our mini-grid is one that local entrepreneurs can confidently rely on, creating fertile conditions for the development of micro-enterprises. Moreover, this milestone propels us towards achieving our aim of increasing village incomes by 20% year-on-year, an objective at the heart of our effort.
This marks the first micro-enterprise to be incubated by our team in the region, one of over 1300 we hope to incubate across 132 villages in Mon district over the next three and a half years, and over 10,000 across Nagaland in the next decade. These are invariably powered by renewable electricity, ensuring climate conscious development where it is most necessary.
