Expanding its scope on green financing and environmental responsibility, the Centre launched the Solar Loan product in August 2017. The product is a collaboration between the Centre and the joint IFC-World Bank Lighting Africa Program, which enables clients access a range of affordable solar lighting products.
The Solar Loan is a clean energy initiative and is designed to accelerate access to renewable energy by providing solar powered lighting products to Grooming clients. The loan finances purchase of solar units ranging from ₦3,000.00 to ₦50,000.00 and has a 7.5% service charge. Repayment is made in equal weekly installments over a 12-week loan term.
