Greening Microfinance

Micro-perspectives in Macro-policies

Building on the service-oriented backbone of microfinance, we connect end-user financing with technology suppliers to deliver energy services to people in hard-to-reach segments. Our 2012 work awakened the Peruvian microfinance industry to the benefits of green credit lines, and 2013 expands to include Mexico and the Philippines as well.

Since 2002 we followed thousands of micro-scale renewable and efficient energy installations hand-in-hand with microfinance partners around the world. With off-grid project implementation in Latin America, Africa and South East Asia, MicroEnergy International knows the importance of an end-user focused approach.

Now MEI sets its sights on development of policies to encourage competitive energy finance markets. Conducive policy can open doors for greener, quality-based financing.
