Recharging Cell Phones

A very simple microfranchise could be based on an idea I have heard about on a podcast, but was unable to find in a quick search online, which is a cell phone recharging business that using a solar panel to charge car batteries to subsequently charge cell phones. It would be such a simple business with low startup costs. Buy the solar panels in bulk, stick a brand on it, market it to microcredit borrowers, and you have a franchise.

On ChangeMakers there is a wonderful model of renting solar panels spearheaded by Fabio Rosa in Brazil.
