Kenya Among World's Green Finance Leaders

Move over London, Shanghai and New York: Kenya, Bangladesh, Mongolia and Jordan have been named as rising green finance leaders in a report from the UN.

They are among 13 developing countries making investments in renewable energy and climate insurance schemes easier and more accessible to the public, it says.

In Bangladesh banks now offer reduced interest rates on loans for wind, solar and other clean energy technologies, with some favouring women-run companies.

Kenya’s burgeoning mobile banking system is moving into pay-as-you-go solar, with M-Kopa, Mobisol and Off-Grid:Electric among a host of fast-expanding companies.
