New energy-efficient washing machine helps the entrepreneur to create a comfortable working environment and reduce energy consumption

Aigul Zhamkeeva owns a small bakery in the city of Shakhtinsk. She is engaged in the production of confectionery. Aigul decided to purchase a new washing machine as it was important to keep the working place clean. She was rather serious about choosing the eligible model. Such technical characteristics as the power of the washing machine, its energy efficiency and water consumption have been considered.

Aigul saw the advertisement about the Green Economy Financing Facility (GEFF) programme from the EBRD in the office of the Microfinance organization (MFO) “KMF”. She contacted her personal manager, who spoke about the terms of the Programme. With the support of this Programme, it is possible to finance the purchase of equipment using a loan, choose an acceptable loan term and monthly payment amount, as well as receive incentives in the amount of 10% of the total purchase price or loan amount. The entrepreneur was very interested in such opportunity. With the support of a personal expert, Aigul selected the eligible model of washing machine on the Green Technology Selector website.

“I’m very pleased that selected model of washing machine meets all my requirements and complies with eligibility criteria of the GEFF Programme. Currently, the washing machine is running silently, and energy bills have been reduced significantly. An incentive in the amount of 10% was a nice benefit for me,” said the entrepreneur.
