The Rural Energy Trust CIG (RETcig) is a new NGO in Cameroon. The organisation aims to bring affordable renewable solar energy products to off-grid rural households and assist them to obtain consumer loans from local and international microfinance institutions. RETcig in partnership with its foreign partners plans to reverse the traditional process of rural electrification through the introduction of a disruptive product, innovative financing mechanism and a well established sales network, thereby breaking the cycle of ‘business as usual’.
