Nthabiseng Mosia is solving one of Africa’s most pressing problems starting from Sierra Leone

Even when family and friends thought she was crazy for passing off a well paid job to start a business in Sierra Leone, Nthabiseng Mosia was not bothered.

She had always known that electricity would occasionally go down in her house but through her travels she realized that other African countries had more serious electricity issues , so when the idea to start Easy Solar came,  she took it seriously.

It was her opportunity to develop homegrown solutions to the continent’s most pressing development challenges.  Lack of energy.

Her desire  to solve this problem led her to pursue a Masters in Energy Finance and Policy at Columbia University in 2014, where she met her  co-founders and subsequently started the company. Essy Solar Ltd. 

Easy Solar (SL) Ltd is a social venture, that makes clean energy affordable and accessible to people who otherwise would not have been able to afford it. Most of her clients are people who have never had any form of electricity,

Her advice to young entrepreneurs is this “never apologize for wanting a seat at the table and pursuing your dreams.”
