ECA was engaged to develop the Access to Finance business line of the Green Minigrid (GMG) Market development Programme from AfDB. Activities under this business line included the design of a financing facility in support of GMG rural consumer connections, a commercial financiers’ capacity needs assessment and subsequently design of a training program linked to envisaged green credit lines and a study of potential supplier and export credit arrangements and the promotion of local manufacturing in view of potentially developing a matchmaking function within the Programme.
