Mozambique is one of the 10 fastest growing economies in the world for 2012 (~7.80%). Nearly all of the rural population suffers from severe power issues. For some businesses VidaGas is the sole provider of power. VidaGas is the sole provider of liquid petroleum gas (LPG) in rural areas, making the competitive environment extremely attractive.
LPG is a more efficient, reliable and sustainable fuel than woodcut and char. Also, VidaGas faci- litates the vaccination rate in rural Mozambique, by powering rural vaccination refrigerators. In addition, residential and commercial LPG sales replace environmentally detrimental sources of power that have negative health effects.
