“Opportunities with high social impact and stable financial returns!”

The Luxembourg Microfinance and Development Fund (LMDF) is a fund that allows institutional investors to access high social impact opportunities and stable financial returns with low volatility. We invest in debt instruments to refinance emerging microfinance institutions in Africa, Latin America, and Asia.

We are driven by a strong social vision and focus our activities where responsible finance is most needed: among the poor and the most excluded. Our investment approach is to identify promising intermediaries providing microloans and other financial products to low-income households. Often, these intermediaries have very limited access to international or local funding.

On our site, you will find all the information necessary to get an idea of the financial contribution certainly, but especially the social impact that your entity could have in the world of development.

Do not hesitate to contact us for more information and to make an appointment.

Social impact

A fund whose vision is to contribute to poverty reduction cannot measure its success or failure in days or months. Development takes time.
Therefore, LMDF strives to establish long-term relationships with funded institutions that have the potential to create a positive and significant impact among their clients and their community.
