The Partnership of Solar Expansion for Off-Grid Community

Kenya Women Microfinance Bank (KWFT) has risen to be the most successful Microfinance bank controlling over 45% of the Microfinance market in Kenya. With over 800,000 clients across the country, KWFT has invested in a vast branch network with over 230 offices spread out across 45 out of the 47 counties in Kenya. This has ensured that KWFT has deep penetration into remote, rural and peri-urban areas to ensure that women gain financial inclusion to uplift their living standards. As a result, KWFT introduced a project focusing on off-grid communities which covers more than 80% of KWFT clientele.              

In partnership with Barefoot Power, KWFT offers 2 products from Barefoot Power to the bank clients; Barefoot Connect 600 and Barefoot Connect 3000 with 16 inches flat screen TV with inbuilt DVD player, decoder, USB and HDMI.

The expected benefits to our KWFT clients will cover:

  1. Saving money - No running cost when comparing to kerosene
  2. Improving health - No smoke or burns
  3. Generating income - through phone charging services
  4. Protecting the environment - No kerosene fumes
  5. Improving education opportunity – Extend reading time at night.
  6. Reliable quality product- Two years warranty for both products.
