Frequently Asked Questions

  • Can I get more than one appliance?

    Yes you can. Some appliances can be combined into a larger loan at the customer’s request. To find out more, please contact EnerGrow.

  • Get in touch with EnerGrow. In some cases, we can extend the duration of the loan and reduce the monthly cost. The quicker you are able to pay the loan back, the less you will pay overall.

  • Yes! We can reduce the duration of the loan if you are able to pay more each month.

  • You should contact EnerGrow BEFORE the payment is due. In some instances we might allow you to make a payment a few days late. If you miss a payment without telling us first this won’t be possible and you will be charged a penalty fee.

  • Yes you can. As long as you pay the total amount owed each month, you can pay in one big amount, or several smaller amounts - whichever is easiest for you.

  • Either through Mobile Money or Agent Banking - we have accounts with MTN, Stanbic and Centenary.

  • Yes you can. If the appliance isn’t working as well as you’d hoped you can return it and stop paying the loan.

  • If the appliance stops working whilst being used properly it will be covered by a guarantee. The length of the guarantee is different for each product, but will always cover the appliance for at least the length of the loan.

  • Yes! If there’s a different appliance you’d like to get from EnerGrow let us know and we’ll do our best to add it to the catalogue.

  • Yes you will - this is a compulsory part of the appliance loan. You will be trained in accounting, entrepreneurship and on how to use your new appliance.

  • Umeme is interested in how appliances can help businesses connected to the grid grow - we are working together to find the best way to help small businesses.
