Investing in RURAL SOLAR

Finance photovoltaic kits to give rural populations access to energy and receive royalties every quarter.

Every time we reach € 3,600, we fund a new batch of 10 solar kits.

40 kits funded, the next 10 in progress!

POSITIVE SAVINGS FOR ECOLOGICAL AND SOCIAL TRANSITION

In West Africa, the electrification rate is less than 40%, a phenomenon due to the absence, or even the impossibility, of connecting rural areas to the electricity grid. This fuel poverty creates structural problems in daily comfort, education, health, safety, and income generation opportunities at the local level. Make a concrete contribution to making African rural areas areas ofopportunity for all and to laying the foundations for the energy transition there, by investing in a solar kit that will be installed in rural Senegal.

1

You invest from 10 € in a new solar kit. We buy this material as soon as the necessary amount is met.

2

The kit is entrusted to our partnerJokosun, who uses it with its customers and avoids the use of a polluting generator, expensive and dangerous for health.

You receive royalties on this operation every quarter for 3 years with a forecast annual yield of 3.6% gross.

Presentation

SOLUTION

Autonomous solar kits for opportunities in rural West Africa

Problem : in West Africa, more than 60% of citizens do not have reliable access to electricity. In rural areas, the electrification rate sometimes does not exceed 5%. This energy poverty negatively impacts daily comfort, education, health, safety, and the local possibility of income generation. The lack of access to reliable and sustainable energy is thus at the root of the rural exodus in West Africa.

Solution : the photovoltaic kits offered by Jokosun each include: 1 photovoltaic panel, 1 long-lasting battery, 5 ultra-bright LED lamps, 2 USB outputs with adapters for charging phones, smartphones, tablets, 1 24-inch LED television.

They are adapted to the specificities of African rural areas: the equipment meets European standards and is accompanied by full energy services (on-site installation, user training, life-long maintenance).

These kits are marketed on a rental-purchase model spreading out the payment to make them accessible and provide new opportunities to isolated rural populations:

replacement of fuel oil use

in generators and kerosene lamps

financial savings

on fuel consumption

better health conditions

thanks to the stopping of fuel oil combustion

better access to education and information

thanks to the lighting

financial data

An investment over 3 years

The Jokosun company is deploying its energy solutions in the Senegalese countryside by offering its solar kits for hire-purchase.

Common Goods, a subsidiary of WE DO GOOD dedicated to asset management for Positive Savings, will be able to acquire 10 kits if € 3,600 are collected. This need could be reduced if a co-buyer intervenes at the same time or if the production cost drops.

The estimated annual income from a solar kit is € 201.11 excluding tax, or € 2,011.10 for 10 kits. The kits are offered on a rental basis over a period of 3 years, at the end of which Jokosun may transfer the kit to the household to which it rents it, if the amount of the rents has made it possible to cover the investment and the related costs. .

For 3 years, 40% of this income will be donated to Common Goods, which will return 94.3% to investors every quarter via the platform, for a forecast return estimated at around 3% per year.
