From BOP, for BOP: China’s Power-Solution

Under the leadership of Li Xia (founder and CEO), Power-Solution has exported products to 63 countries and benefited over 3 million households in Africa.

Li must decide the next stage of the company, whether she can follow her social ambitions while sustaining financial viability.
