MicroEnergy Credits (MEC) is a clean energy marketing and distribution company founded in 2007 that partners with financial institutions and suppliers to provide low-income households and microentrepreneurs in India, Kenya, and Mongolia with access to affordable, clean energy products like solar lights, efficient cookstoves, and water purifiers. MEC addresses the energy poverty that drastically impedes social and economic growth in the developing world, particularly for women and children in rural areas. MEC’s work also reduces carbon emissions and deforestation while promoting better health and education. Since 2007, MEC has reached over 3.5 million people. In February 2017, MCE made a 24-month loan of $500,000 to MEC.
