About Us

BrightLife is a triple-bottom line Uganda-based social enterprise founded by global microfinance pioneer, FINCA International. The company unlocks economic productivity and well-being for the base of the pyramid by bringing together access to finance and access to energy. Specifically, BrightLife:

  • Provides education, distribution, financing and after-sales support for clean energy products, which include solar lanterns, solar home systems, solar appliances and improved cookstoves. These products are designed for extreme affordability and unmatched performance.
  • Partners with best-in-class original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to bring innovative products to market at the lowest possible cost to customers. Because FINCA International is also an investor in select OEMs, BrightLife can play a role in product design decisions and prioritization.
  •  Maintains a commitment to be the most affordable, highest-quality next generation energy company operating in Uganda.

BrightLife is uniquely linked to the worldwide FINCA family of companies, which include 20 community-based microfinance institutions and banks on five continents. FINCA International has been delivering sustainable, market-based solutions to poverty since 1984.
