Expanding Electricity to Low-Income Customers in Liberia

This project has been extremely important in Liberia’s efforts to recover from the civil war and modernize. The availability of electricity service has provided important security benefits such as street lighting to reduce petty crime, as well as complementing modern and extended services such as cell phone charging. The GPOBA component has helped improve basic social services such as education by providing lighting to dwellings in the low-income areas of Monrovia who would otherwise have gone unserved.
