In December 2017, BBOXX entered into an innovative partnership with the government of Togo to provide energy access as part of the government’s aim to improve electrification rates in Togo, particularly in rural areas.

The mission of “CIZO” aims to bring electricity to more than two million citizens by 2022. It will also provide the adoption of mobile payment solutions across the country, helping to improve the financial inclusion of rural communities.

In the past six months, BBOXX has:

· Grown its client base to 2,400, a 45 per cent increase in customers in May 2018

· Created jobs for nearly 100 people from local communities in sales and installations

· Grown from two shops in December 2017 to 10 shops, now serving all five regions of Togo

The company further plans to introduce new appliances including a solar-powered fan, from July 2018.

Mansoor Hamayun, CEO of BBOXX, said, “Some countries in Africa, like Togo, still have a less than 50 per cent electrification rate. Energy poverty is the issue of our age and we are addressing this head on, having provided energy access to 650,000 people globally to date.”

BBOXX focuses on enabling greater financial inclusion by providing reliable energy access and delivering power for smartphones, lights and home appliances to the Togolese citizens.

“BBOXX also recently signed a similar deal with the government of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) which will bring renewable electricity to 2.5mn citizens in the DRC by 2020,” Hamayun noted.
