In East Africa low-income households can’t easily afford energy solutions to power their homes and devices, relying instead on the fumes of kerosene or simply remaining off-the-grid. But one company has been working hard at lighting the way forward.

 

 

On this episode of In the Business of Change, we speak with Jesse Moore, co-founder and CEO of M-KOPA Solar, providing pay as you go solar energy products. With the use of mobile money, over 500,000 households can now power their homes with solar panels.

We caught Moore at a busy Kenyan airport before his visit to Toronto where he’ll will be speaking at the Social Finance Forum. He shared with us the MKOPA story, its achievements, challenges and future plans.
