Caspian SME Impact Fund, 2016-17
We have successfully diversified in to a variety of sectors in the impact space and will now bring the experience and networks gained over the past 12 years to our recently launched fourth fund. Fund-IV will invest primarily in the equity of innovative SMEs engaged in Food & Agri, Clean Energy and Financial Services.
The investment focus is on viable, innovative SMEs that are focused on building efficient distribution channels for any of the following:
• Access to high quality essential services at an affordable cost to a segment of customers who are otherwise underserved or un-served.
• Access to markets resulting in increased opportunities for a segment of producers who were otherwise dependent on non-remunerative markets.
• Access to suitable financial services for micro-enterprises or households which are otherwise under-served or un-served by formal financial institutions.
