SCALING OUR REACH - AT A GLANCE
SolarMate is a Point-of-Sale mobile application that helps India and Nepal's poorest families access renewable household products.
SolarMate does this by helping LMDs scale their reach by selling a higher volume of affordable, renewable goods to the world's most neglected communities.
We are working with Pollinate Group - an Indian and Nepalese LMD of solar lights - to automate and scale their distribution pipelines and management systems. Pollinate Group is currently using our app in the field to kickstart the mass scaling of sales.
Scaling Pollinate Group directly translates to lower kerosene dependence, increased savings for customers, reduced pollution related deaths, less CO2 produced from the burning of toxic fuels, and the empowerment of women as leaders of change in targeted communities.
RENEWABLES AT THE LAST MILE
Tonnes of CO2 produced from the burning of toxic kerosene every year.
Proportion of the 1 billion people living in poverty who Last Mile Distributors cannot currently reach.
Annual income saved every year by families living in urban slums after switching to renewable lights.
OUR LMD PARTNER - POLLINATE GROUP
Pollinate Group empowers women as leaders of change to distribute products that improve health, save time and save money for the world’s most neglected communities. Pollinate Group has currently reached 667,000 people, trained 905 women, reduced CO2 emissions by 90,000 tonnes and saved $23 million for customers living in poverty.
Access to clean, reliable, affordable energy is key to improving quality of life, protecting the environment and driving economic development. Simply connecting to the grid does not solve energy poverty.
Gender inequality exacerbates the impact of poverty on women and millions of women lack access to opportunities, financial independence and decision making.
When you spend your days surviving, how do you find the time to escape poverty? 256 million people live on less than $US1.90 a day in India and Nepal, trapped in intergenerational poverty cycles.
