Multi-link is the official partner of Bosch Siemens Home Appliances Group in East Africa. We make available a modern home cooking stove that uses any plant oil as a new source of home use energy that is clean and affordable replacing LPG gas, charcoal and kerosene. Protos has been specially designed by the BSH team after years of research and development, and targets markets in the developing countries.

Multi-link is also involved in plant oil extraction and offers extensions services to feedstock farmers.

Solar Lanterns


Multi-Link Group Limited is working to revolutionize green energy landscape in Kenya and the region by bringing clean energy solutions for home based cooking and lighting incorporating new technologies that will improve peoples’ standards of living, health and eliminate energy poverty burden.

We acknowledge and recognize the fact that the current access to modern energy services for the majority of the population is not only low, but will remain a key barrier to attainment of Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) in the region.

It is now universally acknowledged and recognized in Kenya that even though energy in itself is not part of the MDGs, it’s development, access and use will significantly determine the level of success in achievement of the MDGs. Energy is a key input in the fight against poverty, hunger and malnutrition (MDG1), achievement of universal education (MDG2), gender parity through emancipation and empowerment of women (MDG3), reduction of infant and child mortality (MDG4), reduction of maternal mortality (MDG5), halting and reversal of the spread and associated fatalities of diseases, especially malaria, HIV and AIDS (MDG6), and improved access to water and sanitation and application of sustainable environmental policies and practices (MDG7).

Consumer Financing

The poor suffer the most from the energy-poverty burden, and are often forced to use unhealthy and dangerous forms of household energy. With the introduction of clean energy technologies such as clean cookstoves and solar lanterns, the poor are finding it most difficult to access these solutions due to low purchasing power. They also are locked out of conventional financial services. These individuals lack collateral, steady employment and a verifiable credit history and therefore cannot meet even the most minimal qualifications to gain access to traditional credit.

Multi-Link has therefore introduced an innovative consumer financing mechanism dubbed ‘Multi-Link Angaza’ to enable the poor access a variety of clean energy technologies.
