Reports to: Finance Manager
About M-KOPA Ltd:
M-KOPA
Solar, headquartered in Nairobi, Kenya, is the global leader of
“pay-as-you-go” energy for off-grid customers.  Since its commercial launch in October 2012,
M-KOPA has connected more than 150,000 homes in Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania to
solar power, and is now adding over 600 new homes each day. The success of
M-KOPA (M= mobile, KOPA= to borrow) stems from making solar products affordable
to low-income households on a pay-per-use installment plan. Customers acquire
solar systems for a small deposit and then purchase daily usage
“credits” for US $0.45, or less than the price of traditional
kerosene lighting.  After one year of
payments customers own their solar systems outright and can upgrade to more
power.  All revenues are collected in
real-time via mobile money systems (such as M-PESA in Kenya) and embedded GSM
sensors in each solar system allow M-KOPA to monitor real time performance and
regulate usage based upon payments.  This
connected design means that M-KOPA is processing vast amounts of data (i.e.
over 10,000 mobile payments per day) via the company’s proprietary cloud
platform, M-KOPAnet. M-KOPA has been recognized for its pioneering business
mode and scale, notably winning the 2015 Zayed Future Energy Prize, being
selected as the top New Energy Pioneer at the 2014 Bloomberg New Energy Finance
awards and earning the 2013 FT/IFC Excellence in Sustainable Finance Award.
