Distributors of Lighting Global or Rwanda Standards Board certified multi-light Solar Home System (SHS) products can apply for receiving financial incentives from the RBF fund.
EnDev’s Pro Poor RBF is a market-based financial support project in Rwanda, which seeks to accelerate access to electricity for low-income Ubudehe 1, 2 and 3 households in off-grid areas using targeted incentives. Participating companies receive an incentive for every solar home system sold to an eligible household without electricity access in off-grid areas in the districts Ruhango, Gisagara, Nyanza, Nyamagabe and Huye.
An amount of more than 2 million € in RBF incentives is available for disbursement from November 2019 until March 2021.
The call for Expression of Interest coordinated by our partner Urwego Bank PIc is open from 8th November 2019 until 30th September 2020. Applications are assessed on a first-come first-serve basis.
