This was to make ends meet.

Fortunate later pursued her passion in academics, After doing Masters in Renewable Energy , she embarked on a PhD research where she discovered in the lab that silicon from sugarcane ash can make solar cells . After her PhD she was inspired start Sustenergy a renewable energy company that has realized tremendous growth in the last two years.
