BBOXX sold 2,400 solar kits to 12,000 Togolese, since last December

(Togo First) - New-generation solar power provider BBOXX, has supplied in Togo more than 12,000 people with BBOXX home smart solar kits, since its establishment in the country, last December.

The firm entered the Togolese market by partnering with the government for the Cizo project which aims to provide access to power to more than two million Togolese citizens by 2022, focusing on rural areas mainly. It has so far sold 2,400 of its solar kits across the country, and the number of its customers soared by 45% during the month of May 2018, alone.

BBOX says it created around 100 jobs in local communities in the framework of its activities in Togo. Also, it now has 10 stores in the country; stores able to serve all of Togo’s five regions. This number is quite an improvement compared to the two stores it had in 2010.

“It is very interesting how BBOXX’s activities, in the past six months only, has impacted Togo. We have great ambitions for our expansion in the country and aim to sell 10,000 kits more before the year ends,” said Mansoor Hamayun, Managing Director BBOXX. BBOXX keeps having a great impact in the region, fostering a greater financial inclusion by providing reliable power that be used for smartphones, lamps and other household appliances,” the executive added.

According to the firm’s chief, it also plans to engage in the mobile payment market. Additionally, it will start selling, this year, new devices such as solar fans.

Besides Togo, BBOXX operates in Rwanda, Kenya, Nigeria, Cameroon and the DRC where it plans to supply solar kits to 2.5 million people, by 2020. The company has already raised CFA2.5 billion from UTB to expand its activities in Togo.
