Training Manual for Micro, Small and Medium Entrepreneurs in Energy Business Financing
GVEP International with funding support from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) developed this training manual to build further the knowledge base on energy service and product delivery of Micro, Small and Medium Energy Entrepreneurs in East Africa. The manual was developed as part of a larger programme to enhance the linkages between energy entrepreneurs, consumers and financial institutions in East Africa.
The training manual is developed as a modular guide to enable energy entrepreneurs to acquire supplementary knowledge in order to expand their energy businesses. It provides guidelines on business delivery models, business and financial management, and the sources of business finance. It is expected that this training manual will assist energy entrepreneurs to be favorably positioned for linkages that would be suited to various sources of finance.
