Tanzania, Rural Energy Act–Similar to the Cambodian law but the Tanzanian law is much more detailed.  It establishes a Rural Electrification Board, Agency and Fund and describes in considerable detail the functions and relationships of these different entities. 

Document Details:

The Tanzanian law also provides more detail on sources of financing for the fund.  In 2010, the World Bank initiated efforts to provide a line of credit that would provide easier access to longer term and lower cost loans to supplement the grants provided by the Rural Electrification Fund.
