We save the lives, time, and money of the 80m energy-poor Nigerians with our fuel generator alternative that is more reliable and affordable through facilitating peer-to-peer microloans for our solar systems. Nigerians have ranked having energy as their second biggest concern after having employment. Our reliable solar inverter provides constant light without having to think about it after purchase.

Our online lending platform lets people from all over the world help Nigerians afford our energy product by loaning them the cash to buy our product. With carbon offsetting being a large solution to the climate crisis, companies and individuals seek easy ways to help countries like Nigeria mitigate the effects of climate change. Our mechanism allows money to go directly into this sustainable solution which offsets air and noise pollution.

The entire solution is in 3 main parts - the solar box, the agreements with microlenders, and our internal pay-as-you-go mechanisms.

The Solar Box
We sell solar boxes so people can have constant electricity. Our product is a solar power box that comes with a 170 watt solar panel, 300 watt inverter, lithium ion battery, 4 light bulbs, and a charge controller.
We have designed and tested our prototype solar boxes and are ready for commercial production when we have funding. We have an agreement with our supplier for exclusive use of this design and they are prepared to reduce the price per unit for larger orders of our product. We also provide installation.

Facilitate microlending for solar
We currently have an agreement with a notable microlender in Nigeria called Fint.ng, that allows people to lend Nigerians the cash they need to buy Uwana Solar. Fint.ng have access to a large customer base and we have an agreement with them to provide our customers with a loan to buy our Uwana Solar Box upon completion of an assessment. We will integrate their platform with ours once we have the resources. We collect 2.5% of the interest charged on each loan from Fint.

Our internal pay-as-you-go mechanism
We plan to track the energy usage of our customers to help them build up a credit history so they can access more loans, and monetise the data. Our commercial products will have a Remote Monitoring System that enables us to remotely monitor the usage of the system and restrict users’ access to energy if they have not met their monthly repayment.

Overall, we sell solar systems and facilitate loans for those that need it.
