Pollinate Group empowers women as leaders of change to distribute household products, such as solar lights and cooking appliances, that improve health, save time and save money for the world’s most neglected communities.
We identify, train and develop local women entrepreneurs who serve hard to reach families living on less than US$1.90 a day. Women entrepreneurs earn respect and meaningful income and act as role models who raise awareness about better product alternatives.
We provide more than business skills and products. We support community activities to position women as leaders and work with each woman’s family to bring them on the journey.
We’ve reached more than 600,000 people across India and Nepal and empowered more than 500 women to bring positive change in their communities. Our network is committed to reaching the communities nobody else will.
Through our work, women establish trusting, long term service relationships with their communities. Our customer service focus, including after sales support, is a key differentiator and advantage to help families break the cycle of poverty.
To make products affordable we offer customised, cash-based payment plans and the default rate is a meagre 2%.
In addition to enabling access to life-improving products, and increasing women entrepreneur’s skills, confidence and rapid income growth, we deliver immersive programs for students, professionals and leaders seeking to have immediate impact and learn about opportunities from different communities. Participants are equipped with practical experience to become the next generation of social and environmental leaders. Contact us at programs@pollinategr oup.org to find out more!
