What the project investment will enable
Further to our recent communication concerning the effect of COVID-19 on our Solar Partners, monies raised under this offer will be used to repay investors from an earlier campaign, freeing up cash to be utilised for other solar projects. This mechanism allows REDAVIA to refinance their existing debt raised on Energise Africa on more favourable terms i.e. a 12 month grace period on capital repayments. Investors should be aware that this offer is for the specific purpose of easing short term cashflow of REDAVIA, and that the increased uncertainty of investing into this campaign is mitigated to an extent through an increased interest rate of 6.5% relative to earlier REDAVIA campaigns, which were offered at 5.5%.
