Senior Business Development Manager, Consumer Finance
Location: Nairobi, Kenya
Greenlight Planet is a VC-funded, impact-focused US-based business which builds and distributes low cost solar home lights for the 2 billion off-grid villagers in Asia and Africa who use dirty, dangerous kerosene lanterns for work, study and life.
Greenlight Planet has been selected as the most innovative solar company in the BoP space by Deutsche Bank and Ashoka’s global Solar for All initiative and our products have been recently recognized as “the best solar lamp” in the Economist.
Uniquely, we sell our life-changing Sun King™ solar home lights to off-grid families in India and Africa through a massive direct sales force of trusted, village-level sales agents that penetrate deeply into rural markets to promote our products home to home and build trust in our brand at a micro level.
Today, over 5,000 active village sales agents sell Sun King™ each month, increasing their own incomes by about 40% on average. Since 2009 over 1,500,000 homes in India and Africa have started using Sun King in their house, every night.
And now we’re employing the resources to scale up dramatically— to over 1,500 frontline staff and 25,000 rural sales agents across several international markets.
