Benefit from the UNDP Guarantee Scheme on Energy Loans
UNDP Lebanon had dedicated a total amount of 600,000 USD to be used as collateral's on green energy loans presented by civic society organizations in Lebanon. Till date, around 20% of the amount has been used to guarantee loans, and LCEC urges potential beneficiaries to benefit from this scheme while applying for the NEEREA financing mechanism. This scheme could be an added value to motivate civic society organizations to apply for NEEREA loans.
