Technical Assistance

Arc Finance provides tailored advisory services and technical expertise to financial institutions, particularly microfinance institutions, as well as to energy and water enterprises focused on serving the poor.

We offer a comprehensive package of services to financial organizations interested in introducing energy-lending programs. These services include market research and energy needs assessments, technical assistance for designing business models and energy loan products, facilitation and development of partnership arrangements with energy enterprises, and design and evaluation of pilot programs. Arc also assists financial institutions with building the capacity of staff and management, client training and awareness-raising, and establishing monitoring and evaluation systems. For those financial institutions with some experience in lending for energy services, Arc offers a comprehensive scale-up package aimed at identifying obstacles, refining processes, diversifying product offerings, and reaching scale.
