Team Leader Assembly Line Career Opportunity – M-KOPA Solar Ltd

Organization: M-KOPA Solar
Ltd
Duty Station: Kampala, Uganda

Manager
About US:
M-KOPA Solar 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 200,000 homes in Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda to solar power,
and is now adding over 500 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.
