Prosper, a new product by Bright Life and FINCA Uganda, is designed to bring clean, affordable energy and financial services to Ugandan families. It allows households to acquire solar home systems from Bright Life using pay-as-you-go (PAYGo) financing, build a credit history, and access savings, loans, and other financial products from FINCA Uganda.
The “Lamp Library” is BrightLife’s new project that it’s piloting at a select number of schools. The project provides each school with 100 portable solar lamps.
The UNCDF program focused on energy contributes to achieving SDG 7 on affordable and clean energy for all, and SDG 8 focusing on decent inclusive work, economic growth, and, more specifically, financial inclusion.
