ACCESS TO FINANCE
Rural Spark offers her partners a unique proposition: receive the products and pay for them in 2 to 3 years. This allows local distribution partners to align their cashflow with the financing model they provide to the users of the kit. Access to capital in the local market is very expensive, holding back the market. Rural Spark offers affordable and fitting access to finance to its partners.
Rural Spark provides an after-sales and technical service to its partners, by producing them with a well trained solar engineer. In larger ongoing and repeating partnerships, Rural Spark will identify and train a person to become a professional solar engineer.
