Providing affordable solar solutions for off-grid communities
Natfort Energy offers solar energy products to communities lacking access to electricity. They offer entry-level solar systems such as lightning units as well as larger systems like solar pumps. Natfort Energy’s business model is centred on affordability, which is why they partner with a mobile operator for PAYGO repayment options.
Natfort Energy recruits community-based agents in all geographical areas in which their products are used. This helps them to grow their market and impact more off-grid communities.
