“My unique connection to Power Africa:” OPIC’s Alemayehou featured in USAID newsletter

March 27, 2014

In the summer of 2013, President Obama announced the Power Africa initiative, designed to help African countries responsibly develop extensive energy resources with the aid of private sector investors. OPIC committed up to $1.5 billion in financing to support this endeavor, in keeping with the agency’s longstanding history of supporting projects in Sub-Saharan Africa. OPIC Executive Vice President Mimi Alemayehou, who spent much of her early life in Africa, recalls in this piece from a recent USAID newsletter witnessing firsthand many of the obstacles to electricity that Africa experienced at a local level and the power that electricity can play at home and work.
