In this pivotal episode, we unravel the often misunderstood process of due diligence in the context of mini-grid financing. We are joined by industry maestros, Capucine Leroux from STOA (equity perspective), and Marco Villalpando from FMO, the Dutch entrepreneurial development bank (debt perspective), who skillfully dissect the various facets of due diligence, transforming it from a formidable challenge into an accessible, manageable task.

Our discussion lays bare the actual costs associated with due diligence, a critical step for securing financing in the mini-grid landscape. We are revealing actionable strategies on how these costs can be significantly reduced. Mini-grid companies are not left in the lurch; we explore the proactive roles they can play in trimming these expenses, including preparing comprehensive and organized data, understanding the key focus areas of due diligence, and maintaining transparent communication.

We venture into a candid conversation about the often-feared due diligence process, dispelling myths and misconceptions. Our experts shed light on the collaborative nature of due diligence; the financiers are not auditors or adversaries but allies aiming to ensure the viability and success of the mini-grid projects.

This episode stands as an essential resource, deconstructing the enigma of due diligence in mini-grid financing. It's a wellspring of knowledge and strategies, aimed at empowering mini-grid companies to navigate this phase with confidence, efficiency, and an enhanced understanding of the financiers’ perspectives. Discover why due diligence isn’t a hurdle but a stepping stone to the robust financing essential for scaling and optimizing mini-grid operations.
