Financing Africa Sub-Saharan Africa

Optimizing Local Currency Debt Financing for Sub-Saharan Solar Energy Markets

with David Ekabouma (GreenMax Capital Advisors) , Nelly Lehn (TCX) , Franck Adjagba (African Guarantee Fund) , Drew Corbyn (GOGLA)

Unlocking local currency debt financing has long been a strategic goal for the distributed solar markets in Africa. It would allow companies to unlock a new source of working capital and manage forex risk. However, the DRE sector has struggled to engage with local currency financing initiatives and national banks, increasing the risk and exposure to local currency fluctuations.

This webinar will highlight three different efforts to increase local currency financing, from hedging, to engaging local financial institutions.
