Globally, 1.3 billion people do not have access to energy and another one billion only have limited access.


M-KOPA Solar addresses this challenge. The company was founded in 2011 by former executives behind M-PESA, the world's leading mobile payment platform. It uses an innovative approach to give low-income households in East Africa access to power: it combines mobile payments with GSM sensor technology to enable households to buy a solar home system at an affordable price.


The loan provided by Hivos-Triodos Fund, Triodos Microfinance Fund and Triodos Fair Share Fund enables M-KOPA Solar to realise its growth ambitions.
