M-KOPA was established in 2011 following successful consumer trials in Kenya during 2010. As of February 2014, we are actively providing affordable solar power to over 50,000 Kenyan households and adding 1,000 more every week. Our team includes over 200 staff and we sell our product through more than 750 retail shops nationwide. The founders of the company are experienced mobile technology innovators who believe in the huge potential of transformative, affordable products designed for underserved consumers. While excellent technology is a pre-requisite, technology alone does not solve for customer needs. Success comes when smart technology is combined with a commitment to on-going, on-the-ground delivery.
