Request for EOIs - Kenya Cookstove Distribution

Winrock International (Winrock) and the Kenya Union of Savings and Credit Cooperatives Ltd. (KUSCCO) are soliciting Expressions of Interest (EOIs) from Kenya-based distribution companies to join the KUSCCO Jiko Safi Fund program.  The purpose of the Jiko Safi Fund is to increase uptake of high-quality fuel-efficient cookstoves among Kenyan consumers. This notice is intended to identify qualified cookstove distributors already working in KUSCCO-supported geographic regions, which meet eligibility criteria (outlined below) and are interested in joining the Jiko Safi Fund program.

Distributors interested in this program description should submit to Winrock an EOI containing a brief overview of their current distribution network (as outlined in the attached document) and proposed approach to integrate KUSCCO’s Jiko Safi Fund structure into that network.  A template for EOI submissions is attached.  Qualified distributors may be contacted to provide more information as needed. 

EOIs are due by 5pm East Africa Time on February 10, 2015.  If you have trouble with the template, please contact kgross@winrock.org.  The Word version of the template can be downloaded at: http://www.relwa.org/word_version_eoi_template_kenya_cookstove_distribution.                        

CLARIFICATION TO ORIGINAL REQUEST FOR EOIs: The possible 'grant funding' that is referenced on page 4 (Section 3.2) of the Request for EOIs document is referring to additional grant funding that might be available (but is not guaranteed) to distributors who are selected to join the program (for things such as training costs, logistics support, marketing etc. depending on the needs of the distributors), which is completely separate from the pool of funds that makes up the Jiko Safi Fund itself.
