    the knowledge I have gotten so far from this course has taught me a lot. Agriculture is very important to our lives and we need to apply the concept to the our real life situation.

    Week 7: ‘Business Models for Projects in the Energy-Agriculture Nexus’ lecture addressed the issue of finance which is crucial to the success of any business. In my part of the world, banks and microfinance institutions are not willing to give loans for projects on renewable energy for several reasons. They are not too convinced that such projects are viable. Some of the projects have been poorly packaged and handled and therefore without encouraging results … perhaps, due to poor technical know-how.

      Hi Emma. i think its true that generally financial institutions are not willing to offer financing solutions for renewable energy projects. From my experience in Zimbabwe most micro financial institutions are willing to pilot funding these developing communities provided there the is a good case like productive use. Any borrower really wants some form of guarantee that their money will be paid back, and expected revenues from the project is one guarantee. i think it would be good if we assist these developing communities on how to package their business proposals in a way that attract financiers.

    This course is a very good introduction to different subjects (agriculture, energy and project evaluation) and have kept the focus.

    The interaction with people worldwide and to read about their opinions and experiences it has been revealing.

    Hi Jenish,

    I have just read your brief mail. I am sure whether it is a question or a statement. However, I thought I should help you by providing you and answer or direction on what to do.

    1) Do you belong to a TEAM?

    2) if so, your team leader was sent a submission link which he/she has to use.

    3) The leader should ‘GO’ to ‘doc menu’ then look at the right hand side, you’ll find a drop drown where you’ll find the various documents which may include the specific document you
    wish to submit.
    4) When you have done so, you’ll see the word ‘Pending’. Don’t panic.
    5) Then you’ll see the said attachment.
    6) Ultimately, once you have done so, it is done successfully.

    Good luck,

    Anthony Madume

    This course has been very informative particularly because l am currently working on a project promoting energy access through the use of solar. We are also supposed to develop business models that will promote PPP in Energy sector and its still work in progress. Some models are coming up slowly but l am happy what we learnt on this course will help in achievement of the project objectives
