We empower entrepreneurship in frontier markets

 

An impact-driven financial service provider, we are the product of a strong collaboration of the European Development Financial Institutions (EDFIs) community, our shareholders, and the European Commission, our main funder, that decided to team up to address the challenge of sustainable development.

Additionality
