About Fenix

Fenix International is a next-generation energy and technology company. Our mission is to improve the quality of life of our customers through inclusive energy and financial services.

Our flagship product, Fenix Power, is a modular, lease-to-own solar home system financed through affordable instalments from just $0.

11 per day. We use real-time transaction data to create a next-generation credit score to finance power upgrades and other life-changing loans, unlocking modern financial services for our customers.

To date, Fenix has sold over 500,000 Solar Home Systems in Uganda, Zambia, Cote d'Ivoire, Benin, Nigeria and Mozambique, bringing clean, reliable power for lights, phones, radios, TV and much more to over 2,500,000 people.

In early 2018, Fenix joined forces with ENGIE, one of the world's largest energy companies and a leader in the move to renewable, decentralised and digital energy.

This has allowed Fenix to make significant commercial investments to accelerate the path to our mission, via new markets and innovative products.

Together, Fenix and ENGIE are making universal access to modern energy a reality.
