MicroEnergy Credits (MEC) is a Seattle-based social enterprise dedicated to empowering people in developing countries to choose healthy, clean, and affordable energy alternatives. By providing established MFIs with the technical and strategic support necessary to develop new sustainable clean energy lending products, MEC aims to overcome the barriers currently preventing impoverished communities from accessing cleaner, more efficient technologies.
In late 2013, MicroEnergy Credits partnered with the Kiva platform to raise $50,000 to fund a clean energy program at Kenyan microfinance institute Juhudi Kilimo. The campaign video was designed to communicate an overview of the investment ask, while simultaneously illustrating the textures of life in East Africa.
The final video combined video shot by MEC staff and images I recorded.
