The Foundation grants loans or guarantees to microfinance institutions (MFIs), social impact enterprises or conventional banks, which contribute to the financing of microfinance institutions
The Foundation acquires equity stakes in social impact enterprises or social businesses essentially in the field of agri-food processing and financial services.
The Foundation coordinates technical assistance and support programmes to bolster the operations of partners that are guided by the Foundation.
The Foundation is also an investment fund advisor and helps investors embark on the development of microfinance or, more generally, inclusive finance.
