DISTRIBUTION MODEL INNOVATION

The Econome Ltd model is based on building a trusted and cost-effective last mile distribution channel through sales of a range of quality, affordable and impactful energy products to rural households. We work with mainly women entrepreneurs by offering them a business opportunity to make good sales that can sustain their livelihoods. With a full basket of different products, the probability of one making sales in each household is higher than if it were only one product being sold by the same entrepreneur. The pilot location is in western Kenya counties of Kakamega, Bungoma and Busia where we aim to work with over 30 women entrepreneurs during this period.

PILOT AND SCALING GOALS

  • Directly reach 3,000 beneficiaries within three months

  • Distribute 600 products comprising of solar lights, cook stoves and water storage tanks within three months

  • Raise $20,000 from sales revenues and other sources within 3 months
