Catalyzing the shift to clean
energy and preventing deforestation
MEC’ s mission is empowering microentreneurs to access affordable clean energy such as affordable solar lighting, efficient stoves and waterpurifiers, with a focus on women. The biggest barrier these communities face in adopting clean energy is access to finance. MEC overcomes this barrier by providing a unique program of financial and technical support to a broad network of local microfinance institutions and other providers in Asia and Africa who can offer clean energy microloans.
Funding for communities of
women microentrepreneurs
MEC’s program empowers its MFI partners to overcome the barriers to clean energy microfinance by deploying financial support and training in the areas of clean energy awareness building, last mile distribution and provision of after sales service. These resources are used to hire tens of thousands of local demonstrators who earn income while spreading awareness of clean energy. Once these barriers are overcome, the MFIs use private capital to offer the microloans. This leverages each dollar of carbon funding 10x, and catalyzes an influx of green economic growth in the economies of the local communities. Communities increase their savings, obtain green jobs, and build their access to credit, in addition to realizing health and education benefits.
High quality social
impact carbon credits
MEC uses a cloud based technology to track the carbon emission reductions when these communities shift from kerosene and deforestation practices to clean energy. This enables MEC to provide high quality social impact carbon credits to corporations and sovereigns.

The MEC Leadership Team is a dynamic group of forward-looking, credible, diverse and recognized leaders with years of robust experience.
