Judith Pryor, Vice President of OPIC’s Office of External Affairs, left, and Mimi Alemayehou, OPIC’s Executive Vice President, share a laugh before Alemayehou’s March 27 testimony on the progress of President Obama’s Power Africa initiative. Alemayehou testified before the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee, and outlined how private-sector investment could help achieve the President’s goal of doubling the number of Sub-Saharan Africans with access to power. Currently 600 million people in the region live without electricity.
