More information about this loan
This loan will help EdM provide energy-efficient wood or coal-burning stoves and gas stoves to retailers. EdM uses loaned funds to purchase stoves from local producers, then supplies the stoves to retailers on credit. Retailers, who typically own pre-existing small businesses and wish to add stoves to their inventories, are responsible for repaying the cost of the stoves to EdM in installments over the course of the loan term. These stoves help end users reduce their fuel expenses and avoid health complications caused by cooking over open fires. Since EdM pays the cost of transporting stoves from producers to retailers, and provides marketing support in the form of promotional posters and awareness-raising events, the organization adds a margin of between 4 and 7.5% to the cost the retailers pay for the stoves in order to make the project self-sufficient.
