WHAT THEY DO


Grassroots Business Fund (GBF) evolved out of the International Finance Corporation’s Grassroots Business Initiative (GBI). The fund invests in high impact businesses with operations in emerging markets to drive economic development and improve local standards of living for millions of people at the base of the economic pyramid.

In addition to providing investment capital, GBF provides clients with best-in-class business advisory services so they receive the information and expertise needed to overcome challenges. This distinctive blend of investment capital and assistance to the investee companies is delivered through two main vehicles working together: a private investment fund and a non-profit organization.


OUR SUPPORT


We are managing an investment in Grassroots Business Fund, which has been made through our sister organisation, the not-for-profit Hampshire Foundation in the US.
