According to DFC, the proposed project will support the borrower company in expanding specialty eye care centers by making capital investments, funding working capital, and refinancing existing debt. This transaction will help improve eyecare services in underserved areas of northern and western India that currently experience high rates of preventable blindness. Longterm financing from DFC will enable the company to expand into more underserved geographies.
This transaction is expected to have a highly developmental impact through support for accessible and affordable eyecare services in India. The Project will provide a range of affordable eyecare services, including optical, medicines, surgery, and emergency care to help alleviate this development challenge.
