AbstractMost of sub-Saharan African (SSA) countries have electrification rates under 30%. This means the majority of the one billion population of SSA do not have access to affordable power and most of them do not have electricity to light up their houses at night. This has tremendous impacts on key sectors like education and health. Fortunately, some businesses are emerging on the continent to address the situation and bring electricity to even those who live in remote rural areas. This paper showcases M-Kopa, one of those successful companies in Kenya.
