What We Do

We make loans to social enterprises reducing poverty and improving the natural environment.

We believe debt investing is the most suitable form of investment for most social enterprises.  Although they do not have the prospect of an IPO or big dividends, successful social enterprises can repay loans while growing their enterprises and their impact.

Entrepreneurs should focus their creative energy on running the best possible business, not fundraising. Therefore, we work swiftly to meet their needs. Loan applications can be converted into disbursement in approximately 2 months.

About half of the world lives on less than $5.50 per day. What can you do to change this?

Growing resilient and future-ready social businesses

Our borrowers operate in some of the world’s most economically vulnerable markets, with low margins, limited access to financing, lack of government support, and high risk of natural disasters.

Their continued impact delivery and success are foremost of our goals. That is why apart from loans, borrowers get access to our network of potential donors, investors, customers, and experts.
