Your agents can earn additional income, drive footfall and increase the time customers spend in-store
Your customers can access affordable energy to charge their phones without credit or contracts
Why are you doing this?
1.2 billion people live without access to affordable power and even more are in areas where supply is unreliable.
Despite this, the UN expects the number of mobile phone users to reach 5 billion by 2019.
For people living in off-grid or grid-edge communities, charging their phones is a daily challenge. One that leaves many without access to services like government portals, online banking, social media, entertainment and eCommerce.
We think everyone has the right to be included in the modern economy. Off-grid shouldn't mean offline.
