LMDF invests in emerging microfinance institutions who work hard to make the life of micro-entrepreneurs better. We help those promising microfinance institutions to become strong and reliable partners for micro-entrepreneurs who need a reliable and fair offering of basic financial services – micro-credits, a safe place to store your money, transfers and micro-insurance.
These three elements set us a bit apart from the mainstream: As an investment fund with a strong social vision, our actions are focused on emerging microfinance institutions with a strong social mission and a great potential for development.
- Entities with an established business model in the local microfinance sector
- Absence of funding is an obstacle to growth and reaching more beneficiaries
- Institutions with strong social vision and mission directed towards the development of women, youth, rural populations and the most excluded
- Orientation towards niche and under-developed markets
- Addressing some of the challenging areas of financial inclusion
