BFA is a global consulting firm specializing in using finance to create and implement solutions for low-income people. BFA has been active in the off-grid energy sector for the last two years, primarily through our fintech action-research initiatives, FIBR and Catalyst Fund, focused on technology innovation to advance financial inclusion through PAYGo solar partners and business models. We see significant opportunities for BFA to continue to add value to the sector, bringing our expertise and experience of over twelve years in designing financial solutions for low-income people, our network of expert consultants, donors, regulators, and innovators, as well as our fintech strategies and tools to address barriers to scaling off-grid solar solutions. As BFA’s work in the energy sector expands, our relationship with GOGLA and its members is critical for cultivating learning in the broader sector, and for contributing to important working group discussions, research, and events that advance the off-grid energy sector. We look forward to joining GOGLA working groups, participating in the formulation of sector KPIs and disseminating best practices, such as consumer protection principles, through our collaboration with GOGLA and its members.
