Arc Finance aims to benefit poor populations by linking end-user finance with enterprises that offer clean, modern, and sustainable energy systems and products. Arc provides critical support in building trust and capacity among the players, enabling them to understand both the lending models and energy products that are appropriate and available. Arc facilitates each group’s awareness of after-sales service arrangements, investment options, and the policy issues at stake. By aligning with Arc’s solid foundation of knowledge and experience, financial institutions and enterprises are often willing to experiment with new partnerships, that they might have been wary of before — and with Arc’s support, they are getting results.
