Innovation Description

PEG Africa, which is a market leader in West Africa, and the largest PAYG company in Ghana, is a pioneer in building a PAYG business model that works in a low mobile money environment. It has developed a unique set of repayment tools to make it easier for customers to pay PEG, even if they are unfamiliar with mobile money. With a $150,000 award from Scaling Off-Grid Energy: A Grand Challenge for Development, PEG Africa is experimenting with ways to deploy these repayment tools for rural customers in Ghana. It is piloting three different tools to determine which has the greatest potential for scale: assisted mobile money payments, the use of mobile short codes, and direct sales through PEG Africa partner shops.
