About EnerGrow

EnerGrow is an appliance financing start-up based in Uganda. We partner with On and Off Grid energy companies to help people purchase productive use appliances to increase their incomes which they could not normally afford.

EnerGrow partners with energy companies to do this in the communities they are expanding into. Why? Hundreds of millions of people across Africa have expensive on- and off-grid electricity connections that are barely used. Customers can afford power, but they cannot afford productive use appliances that could help them earn an income.

This situation both leaves energy companies across Africa economically challenged while their customers remain stuck in an unnecessary poverty trap. Energy companies are slow to expand into rural areas and cannot provide good services even in urban areas because so many customers consume so little that the energy companies often struggle to afford to maintain their infrastructure.

EnerGrow’s data-driven asset finance helps accelerate rural electrification and improve rural energy services while at the same time increasing rural peoples’ incomes.

Customers win. Energy companies win. EnerGrow wins. Together – we will change Africa.
