Our expertise : Energy & Digital

Access to energy

Access to clean, reliable electricity and clean cooking is essential for poverty alleviation, economic growth and improved living standards. Baobab+ commercializes innovative solar products that meet the needs of households and entrepreneurs such as clean cookstoves, solar home systems, freezers or generators.

Access to digital

Digital technology will be vital in facing tomorrow’s challenges. Baobab+ takes part in this digital revolution by equipping thousands of households with digital products. We partner with local telco operators such as Orange, MTN or Airtel to distribute this offer.

Pay-As-You-Go financing

In addition to make our products available via Baobab branches network, a PAYG offer extends access to all. The client makes weekly or monthly payments, as his or her cash flow allows to activate the product and build towards ownership.

Financial inclusion

Thanks to our partnership with Baobab Group our clients who previously were not eligible for microfinance institutions, can now become eligible for financial products thanks to their Pay-As-You-Go credit history.
