Nthabiseng Mosia is Co-Founder and Chief Financial Officer of Azimuth – trading locally in Sierra Leone as Easy Solar – an innovative distribution company making clean energy affordable to those under-served by electric grids. Easy Solar offers solar-powered devices on a rent-to-own financing structure. More than 87 percent of Sierra Leone’s 6.4 million people live without electricity and, in rural areas, only 1 percent have access. Since launching operations in 2016, Easy Solar has provided electricity to over 30,000 people in the country. Before completing her Masters in Energy Finance and Policy at Columbia University, where she met her co-founders, Mosia worked as a management consultant with clients in the energy, telecoms and financial services sectors. A South African and Ghanaian dual-citizen, Mosia is a Pan-African at heart, passionate about building homegrown solutions to the continent’s most pressing development challenges. This has led her to live and work across Southern, East and West Africa. She was named one of South Africa's 100 Most Influential Young People in 2017 by Avance Media. She lives full time in Sierra Leone and is an avid scuba diver.
