PEG delivers Pay-As-You-Go (PAYG) asset-based financing to consumers who lack both access to reliable electricity and formal banking services.

We are also scaling income-generating energy assets such as solar-pumps, solar generators and solar fridges for households and SMEs.
To date, PEG has raised over $60 million and has over 500 full time staff across Ghana, Ivory Coast, Senegal and Mali.
