In addition to providing affordable lighting, Barefoot Power has also trained a network of 'solar entrepreneurs', who sell solar products in their towns and villages. Following the 'Venture Debt' model, the company provides loans for Small and Medium enterprises to sell microbusiness solutions that are in turn designed by the company itself. This model has shown promise, leading to 100% growth of these startups in the first 6-12 months.
