M-KOPA LLC is a mobile-based technology company established in 2011 after successful trials of innovative, embedded mobile services. M-KOPA uses mobile payments to offer consumer financing for energy products and services, targeted at off-grid users.
Our first product; a mobile enabled solar home lighting system is available in Kenya where it provides clean, affordable energy to consumers, made accessible through machine-to-machine technology and mobile payments.
What we do:
Through M-KOPA, customers use mobile payments such as M-PESA to pay for a home solar lighting system on a “pay-per-use” basis, making the transition to cleaner energy much more affordable especially to low-income users.
The partners and management team of M-KOPA includes several former telecoms executives who were responsible for the initiation and scaling of M-PESA, the award-winning mobile financial service platform in Kenya.M-KOPA has the investors, funding and ambition to expand its product line and extend its reach to new markets.
