About

Jiro-Ve is Malagasy for: 'Do you want light? We got light!' It is our mission to make great quality lights available to people that currently have no other choice than to use candles and kerosene. Jiro-Ve has come up with an innovative, inclusive business model to provide affordable, clean and healthy lighting for marginalized communities. Our model allows us to rent out a rechargeable LED light for a price that is cheaper than candles or kerosene. For 200 Ariary per day (≈ 0,06 €) people get a fully charged light delivered to their doorstep. Both in rural areas and neighbourhoods of cities. Jiro-Ve hires local entrepreneurs and uses existing networks, supporting and developing entrepreneurship.
