The lack of working capital is a frequent constraint to the development of small enterprises in Africa, and to small energy enterprises in particular. To improve access to capital by the SME, GVEP intends to launch the East Africa Energy Access Fund (EAEAF). This feasibility study was the Tanzanian component of a larger feasibility study covering Tanzania, Kenya and Uganda.
The study identified 77 potential partners to GVEP’s EAEAF and proposed four initial pilot transactions. These include a large-scale consumer credit facility to finance solar household systems for clustered groups of cash-crops farmers, a briquettes factory, a 1MW mini-hydro power plant and a consumer finance scheme to provide LPG set-ups. Business plans for these four transactions have been developed.
