This term is used to describe financing in solar mini-grid applications in developing countries. I'm confused about this term, as its made up of individual terms that don't make sense to me altogether.

I know patient equity is an investment with non-immediate returns, and it makes sense because they have high initial capital costs, but what about "non-commercial"? I know that a commercial loan is between a business and a bank, the familiar definition that comes to mind associated with loans.
