Demonstrating iSmart’s Potential in Kenya’s Peri-Urban and Rural Areas

iSmart is a social enterprise that distributes clean-burning cookstoves, solar lamps, water filters and other household goods to base of the economic pyramid (BoP) customers in Nairobi’s slums that could benefit from these products, but currently lack access.

iSmart aims to distribute clean cookstoves in Nairobi’s urban slums and demonstrate the market potential and viability of the business model in peri-urban and rural markets outside of Nairobi. Over the duration of the project, iSmart will create jobs as sales agents for 150 youth and women and distribute 5,000 clean-cookstoves.
