Ignite Power on IRENA report: "Advancing renewables in developing countries”
"The Ignite Rwanda project is a joint venture between Ignite Power – a private limited liability company – and the Government of Rwanda to distribute and install 500 000 solar home systems to households through an affordable payment scheme. The systems are distributed through agents in districts across the country, creating employment for young people (50% women) along the value chain. An affordable pay-as-you-go (PAYGO) model enables off-grid low-income households to make small payments daily or weekly. The project will install solar PV kits to power lights and FM radios, as well as to charge phones, providing increased information access to rural communities. The ADFD has allocated a concessional loan of USD 15 million to this project".
