Through an industry analysis, including a
contingent valuation survey of FINCA's borrowers, barriers to the

strategies to overcome them are proposed.
Second, this paper examines the potential for FINCA to generate carbon credits through the diffusion of solar lanterns. Potential sources of carbon revenues were assessed including voluntary markets, through the company MicroEnergy Credits, and the Clean Development Mechanism.
