Last summer, CIS’s management team visited Kenya, to review our business operations and explore partnership opportunities. By chance, we discovered that, Kenyan schools are spending a substantial part of their money just to power up their schools – with the expense ratio even higher than some European schools!
After a 6-month research encompassing 122 interviews with stakeholders at different Kenyan schools, we have verified the product-market fit, and designed a platform supporting end to end delivery of solar school cabinet from sourcing, financing to upgrading.
Soon in September, we will kick off our pilot in Homa Bay, Kenya. By replacing fossil fuel with solar energy, three schools and nearby communies will be able to have a greener and cheaper energy solution.
