Get instant access to M-KOPA products from day one, while building ownership over time through easy daily payments

We believe that everyone should have the power to achieve progress in their life, and access to financing unlocks this power. We reach customers who are underserved by traditional financial services, which often require customers to have a credit history or assets to secure financing.

Our innovative financing model offers them instant access to the product, while building ownership over time through flexible micro-payments.

Once a customer has paid off the instalments for their product, they can leverage this asset and their credit history with M-KOPA to access more products and services to progress in their life.


It has been over 10 years since M-KOPA pioneered and kick-started the wider pay-as-you-go (PAYG) solar market. The concept for our business model was first sketched out by our founders on a whiteboard in early 2010. Our idea was to combine the power of digital micropayments with IoT (Internet-of-Things) connectivity to make credit more accessible, and solar was just the start.

Since then, we have built one of the world’s most advanced digital credit platforms. We have used it to provide nearly $600 million in credit that has enabled over 1 million customers to access solar lighting, energy-efficient televisions and fridges, smartphones, cash loans, and more.

Our Customer Promise


Our priority is that customers LOVE M-KOPA. This motivation is shared by our entire team and is evidenced in the quality of our products, our flexible micro-payments and the value that customers derive from connecting to an M-KOPA device.

Our promise is to provide a GREAT after sale service experience to our customers through our call center helplines and via our network of 100+ Service Centers across the region.

Our commitment is that OUR CUSTOMERS are at the heart of every decision that we make, every product that we develop and in every market that we serve. We do this to ensure that our customers continue to CHOOSE M-KOPA.
