Alternative Finance Channel for Mini-grids

Crowdcredit operates a cross-border crowdfunding loan platform. We provide debt capital to mini-grids and other lending opportunities on a global basis. Since its inception in 2013, Crowdcredit has aimed to connect capital borrowers in countries with immature financial systems or limited capital availability with lenders from nations with a mature, saturated financial market, namely Japan. As of the end of August 2018, Crowdcredit has raised over US$ 100 million from more than 28,000 Japanese individual investors, and the fund size is continually growing.
