Health Access International has extensive experience arranging favourable financing for private clients, NGO’s and the public sector in countries in transition.
Phase 1 of the financing process
The first step towards a successful financing closure of a project consists of a feasibility study and a dedicated financial model accurately representing the financial variables in the project. In consultation with the client we approach different candidate lenders and present the case to them.
Because Health Access International not only develops, but also implements projects, we can offer customised export finance packages. Such financing can not be obtained locally and significantly reduces interest rates, collateral and own equity required. For low and middle income countries, a concessional component (such as a grant) is often required for projects in the public sector.
Export financing proposals are influenced by:
- Client requirements (feasibility study)
- Country of origin of medical equipment and other products
- Project management by exporter
- Project sustainability
- Guidelines for concessional loans and concessional credit insurance (sustainability, social impact, environment)
For the public sector in countries in transition, there are often significant grants available to help build critical infrastructure such as hospitals. We assist Ministries of Health obtaining such funds, which are often supplemented by development bank loans or export finance.
