We carefully select promising microfinance institutions (MFIs) and small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) operating in the most underserved markets.

We are always open to creating new partnerships and discussing blended finance opportunities (e.g., first loss grants, credit guarantees) that mobilize private capital flows to underserved economies. In turn, this allows development finance institutions to advance SDGs, scope, and scale positive social impact.
