Basic Funding Requirements
Imagine going to your local bank asking for a business loan. The bank will ask to see various documents demonstrating that you have indeed done your homework, and that the project in itself is a viable project to lend against. Project funding is no different. In order for a suitable funder to assess whether or not your project is worth funding, these are the minimum funding requirements you’ll need:
- An Executive Summary
- A Business Plan
- Financials (if not current then projected)
- PPA’s and relevant licenses
- C.V’s of project principals
- Our ‘application for funding’ form
- **Proof of funds (Most lenders will require POF) or able to pay fees.
- A Registered Company (a website will help)
Critical Components for Business Funding
Before a lender approves a project for funding, they will evaluate the mechanics of it. The business plan and financials should show the projects strength and performance in these prime key areas;
- Goals, vision and strategy
- It should be thoroughly researched and innovative
- The team should be qualified or have experience in the project sectors
- There should be growth (strong market for the products)
- Risk managed
When doing their due diligence, funders will often look at the following components:
- Cash and collateral available and sunk into the project (the more the better)
- Solid commercial agreements
- KYC – Risk assessments
- Credit worthiness of client and counter parties – credit scores, collateral, capacity and cash flow
- Credit Enhancement – private guarantors, Bank Instruments
- Promoters, credibility and history
- Loan terms and conditions
- Compliant and acceptable corporate structure
