APPROACH

BRIDGING THE FINANCIAL GAP

Guarantees: 

Bridge the gap between subsidized and commercial credit by enabling emerging enterprises to "graduate" from subsidized finance,

 

Ensure all beneficiaries receive technical support, and provide an exit strategy for impact investors seeking to launch small businesses that can access credit on their own, 

 

Enable financial institutions responsibly to reach new markets of small businesses and smallholder farmers, 

 

Enable lenders to develop new products and serve new markets prudently first with, and then without guarantees.
