Solar Microfinance Programme


This project is active

The Solar Microfinance Programme broadens access to affordable solar home solutions for 25,000 households in rural Cambodia.

Many households in Cambodia are not yet connected to the national electricity grid and instead use car batteries charged at diesel-powered charging stations to satisfy their energy needs. The cost can be three to four times higher than the cost of grid electricity, and are a major drain on already modest family incomes.

Our Solar Microfinance Programme strives to address this problem by broadening access to affordable solar home solutions for 25,000 households in off-grid locations in rural Cambodia. To ensure that rural households have access to solar products, we support fledging local solar entrepreneurs in tackling a range of market barriers, and in kick-starting a flourishing off-grid solar market.

The Solar Microfinance Program is funded by the French Development Agency AFD and the European Union.
