As access to finance is a key limitation for adoption of clean energy solutions, we work with a range of finance institutions to make our products affordable to end-users in various economic situations.
Mwangaza Light management and sales team has solid expertise in working with the co-operative movement and we have grown partnership with a broad range of SACCOs located in Nairobi and in both big and smaller towns. Besides SACCOs, at the county and lower levels we work with Village Saving and Loans Associations (VSLAs) and Self-Help Groups (SHGs) registered as a cooperative. At local level we also work with Table Banking Groups.
At the national level, we work with SMEP Micro Finance Bank, which is affiliated to NCCK and many NCCK member churches use this church-oriented bank. As part of the Green Churches initiative, we use our expertise in working with churches and with SACCOs to support the growth of church-based SACCOs.
