The Renewable Energy for Sustainable Growth Conference, dedicated to rural electrification and agricultural development, took place on October 19-20, 2017 in Kigali, Rwanda. Private and public sector players engaged in this 2-day event to scale-up the use of renewable energy for sustainable growth.
Evary Musara, Managing Director of Solarkiosk Rwanda Ltd., represented SOLARKIOSK as a speaker (as seen on the center of the stage in the image below). Limited purchasing power by local communities to buy a high-value solar product and high-interest rates by local banks that limit borrowing by end users were highlighted as main challenges. However, the market maintains to be attractive and growing and continues to raise interest of investors and financiers.
