Our customers are generally poor, living in rural Rwanda. Even though our price is 70% cheaper than concrete, it can be expensive for them to pay out of pocket. Thus, we incorporate financing options for customers to pay in installments.
A 25 square meter floor will cost roughly $80 USD, which is not affordable to most of our customers up front, but over the course of the floor’s life (10-15 years), is certainly affordable.
We currently offer payment options to pay roughly 25% of the price in 4 installments over 1.5 months, and are looking to finance our floors over the course of several years so that customers are only paying a few dollars each month, which we believe will drastically increase access.
