About US:
M-KOPA Solar is the global
leader of “pay-as-you-go” systems. Since its commercial launch in
October 2012, M-KOPA has connected more than 700,000 homes in Kenya, Tanzania
and Uganda to solar power. In January 2019, M-KOPA extended its pay-as-you-go
solution to smartphones. The success of M-KOPA (M = mobile, KOPA = to borrow)
stems from making products affordable to low-income households on a pay-per-use
instalment plan. Customers acquire systems for a small deposit and then
purchase daily usage “credits”. After regular payments, customers own
their systems outright and can upgrade to more products.
