With Angaza, a consumer has three ways to make their installment payment to their distributor and continue using their product. They can 1) make a cash payment directly with a distributor’s agent, 2) utilize a mobile money kiosk to facilitate a cash payment, or 3) use a mobile phone to quickly and easily make a digital payment. When this is completed, the distributor’s account is credited. Once the payment is received, the distributor is notified and the Angaza Hub’s server sends an unlock command to the consumer’s phone. This enables the consumer to continue using the solar home system. This lock and unlock payment cycle continues until the balance of the solar home system is paid off and the consumer owns the system.

Stage 4: Transition to Scale

Angaza’s platform enables distributors in emerging markets to extend and manage Pay-As-You-Go product financing to off-grid customers in remote regions. Recognizing that rural distribution is often localized to each particular region, Angaza has developed their software to further increase the competitiveness of local SME distributors. Angaza can also apply the insights it gains through collected aggregated data to help address growth barriers elsewhere in the value chain for life-changing products.
