Mobility for Africa

Mobility for Africa (MFA) is an energy mobility solutions company that seeks to positively disrupt the rural African economy by bringing the electric vehicle revolution to ordinary people, especially women. Our model is to set up fleets of electric tricycles, that are powered by a bespoke lithium ion battery and charged at an off-grid swapping station.

The e-tricycles, which can carry 350kg, are then brought on a lease to purchase model to women led small businesses working in horticulture or trade; to groups of young people who use it to provide transport as a service; and small-scale farmers already linked to the agricultural sector through contract farming.
