Results-based financing (RBF) scheme is different from traditional grants because incentives are disbursed upon delivery and independent verification of results. This means that participating companies will have to pre-finance their projects, either through loans or other sources of funds. This RBF provides direct financial support to beneficiary households and micro-enterprises to buy down the cost of a clean cooking product.

No. The RBF subsidizes the price of clean cooking products to final households. The participating companies must transfer the entire subsidy amount to its customers. The companies are expected to leverage their own resources for capacity building, marketing and any other operational activities. However, CC-RBF may provide certain TA (training, orientations, etc.) to participating companies.

Any participating company should go through the eligibility criteria provided in the EAQIP Component 3b Operations Manual, Section 6.13. Failure to comply with the eligibility criteria will lead to suspension of the company from participating in EAQIP Component 3b CC-RBF. The company should comply with these criteria at all times. Whenever the company deviates from the eligibility criteria and the stipulated roles and responsibilities, a credible commitment in the form of a time-bound action plan needs to be prepared by the company and submitted to EDCL and BRD. EDCL, BRD, and the World Bank team will closely review the action plan and decide accordingly.
