Scaling up Integrated Microfinance Services
This project supports the creation of the Social Investment Fund 5 (SIF-5), a regional microfinance fund that will provide financing to up to 20 institutions in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC). The Fund will target microfinance institutions and cooperatives that not only deliver credit but combine landing activities with other services such as health services, business education, technical assistance for small farmers and green technologies (microfinance plus). The Fund will be managed by Global Partnerships (GP), a Seattle-based mission-driven organization with a successful track-record raising and deploying four social investment funds in the region. For the MIF, this project represents an opportunity to support the scaling up of a unique microfinance model that uses integrated services to maximize social impact. At the end of its cycle (year 10), the Fund is expected to have supported the expansion of financing and value-added services to more than 700,000 clients, including women, small farmers and poor populations. To help structure the Fund, the project will include a USD 2.5 million Limited Recourse Loan (catalytic investment), and up to USD 2.5 million in Senior Debt.
