Financing to the end user remains a barrier to the sale and adoption of clean and efficient cooking solutions in many markets. This session will hear from cookstove and fuel practitioners that have piloted internal asset financing programs in the past few years with varied degrees of success. The audience will learn the structure of the financing offered to end users, successful models, unexpected challenges and will conclude with a discussion on ways to support the scale up of asset finance in the sector.
