    13) The objective of SDG is to increase the delivery of solar home systems (SHS) and thus bring environmentally clean electricity to rural households in developing countries. Specifically, it aims to overcome the key barriers to accelerated growth of PV in the off-grid segment including lack of medium-term funding to enable customers to repay the relatively high initial cost of PV systems over time, a lack of understanding of PV by conventional financial intermediaries (FIs), and weak capitalization of many indigenous PV companies. SDG will address these constraints by providing both financing and business-development services. SDG has a target capitalization of US$50 million, with approximately $30 million of investment capital devoted to an Investment Fund (Solar Development Capital) and $20 million of grant funds devoted to a Foundation (Solar Development Foundation). SDG will invest in private sector companies involved in rural, commercially sustainable PV activities, including the distribution, sale, lease-hire, or financing of PV solar home systems and other productive use PV systems for electricity generation, and provide financing to local FIs who will service such companies. The combination of finance and business development components is needed in order to overcome persistent market barriers and accelerate the growth of the market.
