LMDF, your fund for a transparent and responsible investment

We are a social purpose investment fund...

We facilitate access to responsible finance by building sustainable links between investors, microfinance institutions and ultimate beneficiaries. more

Our investment approach...

…. We identify emerging microfinance institutions with a strong social mission and provide financing for growth. Our focus is to deploy our capital where it is needed most: In developing and least developed countries and in building long-term relationships with our investees. more

We are an attractive investment option...

… balancing social impact with stable returns and an attractive risk profile. Individual investors benefit from the protection through the first-loss tranche subscribed by the Luxembourg State! LMDF does not require a minimum investment size, so we are accessible for a wide range of interested investors. more / financial performance

9 years of social investment track-record...

…We look back to 9 years of experience in investing in around 26 countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America. We have learned to spend a lot of time and effort on the analysis of what is actually really happening on the ground and believe that transparency is very important.

And we believe in the benefit for the thousands of micro-entrepreneurs and individuals who do not have access to fair and reliable financial services. Some have shared their story with us: testimonies
