Proparco has invested equity in d.light, a solar power and products company with operations in Africa and Asia. The French development finance institution is investing $10 million in the company, which will be used to expand d.light’s solar and Pay-Go consumer finance business in Africa. No additional terms of the deal were available as we went to press.

“We are impressed by d.light’s track record in meeting evolving customer needs for access to electricity across both Africa and Asia,” said Denis Braud, Proparco’s Head of Equity for the Middle East and Africa. “Their experienced team has developed efficient sales and distribution channels in these markets and continues to expand their product range. We look forward to supporting the company to realize its growth ambitions.”
