Pawame provides solar home systems (SHSs) and more to off-grid communities in Africa on a rent-to-own basis. Starting from our base in Kenya we are tackling the huge challenge (opportunity!) to electrify and serve the >160 million households (70% of the population) in sub-Saharan Africa that don’t have access to grid power.
Our SHS is not just cheaper, cleaner and more convenient than traditional solutions, it’s transformational: By the time our customers have paid off their systems (after about 18 months), we are able to — using technology, proprietary credit scoring and innovative payment schemes — profitably offer them an array of life changing products and services that they would not otherwise be able to access or afford. Ultimately we aim to be, not just an energy access company, but a leading provider of products and services to the ‘bottom of the pyramid’, a trusted life partner for our customers and one of the most respected consumer brands in Africa.
