Who We Are
We expand opportunities for people living in poverty in the developing world
Beneficial Returns was founded in 2016 based on the belief that capital, when used consciously, can catalyze positive change. We are dedicated to supporting growing social enterprises that use market-based solutions to reduce poverty and protect the natural environment.
By investing in a sustainable and equitable future, you are sowing seeds of change that creates hope for the generations after you.
Our diverse and committed staff draws on its experience and on-the-ground expertise to carry out our mission.
We have no secrets. From our fee structure to our investment philosophy, we share our approach openly. We seek to communicate highlights, lowlights, and everything in between simply and plainly to our borrowers and investors.
We serve two groups of stakeholders – borrowers and investors. And we delight in connecting people within and between these groups. We actively invite investors to travel with us to visit communities where our borrowers are, because we believe relationships and experiences are life changing.
We are social entrepreneur-focused. We recognize that social enterprises are faced with difficult challenges, from limited access to capital to lack of support in scaling up. We don’t shy away from risks and are committed to helping social businesses grow their impact.
