Distributing and marketing liquefied petroleum gas (LPG)
Wana is a leading Uganda-based LPG distributor that provides healthy cooking fuel alternatives in a country where the dominant cooking practices exacerbate deforestation and cause significant health hazards to users. Wana’s BoP oriented distribution strategy involves an innovative collateral-based microlending program to cover the high upfront cost of gas canisters, while allowing BoP clients to reduce their monthly energy costs by ~15% due to LPG’s increased efficiency over biomass fuels.
