|| This webinar provides an opportunity to share and discuss the findings from CEEW’s recently published study on solar-powered livelihoods. CEEW will present its research analyzing the financiers’ perspective in lending for solar-powered livelihood appliances in India. Importantly, the work shows the impact of solar-powered productive-use technologies on the net incomes of end-users and their loan repayments.
Presenters will share their assessment of the prevailing policy solutions and provide recommendations for the private sector, policymakers and donors to improve access to finance for end-users of such products. Data on income, revenue, cash flow and loan repayment of 300 micro enterprises were analyzed for two specific technologies supported by SELCO Foundation (sewing machines and digital service centers). There will also be discussion of how India’s experience compares with comparable efforts in East Africa.
