Powerlive Zimbabwe is a women social enterprise that sells, distributes and installs scalable solar home and business energy systems for productive use on Pay As You Go to rural off-grid areas in Zimbabwe. This is achieved through rural women social groups where most of the sales agents and technicians come from. The business model is centred on women as the major player for household productivity and livelihood. This is informed by the deep understanding of the roles women have always played within African communities. Our idea of women empowerment is to increase the participation of women in the value chain process because we believe they are affected the most by energy poverty.
