World Vision Canada World Vision - Small and Growing Business Fund
Product Details
Product Name: World Vision - Small and Growing Business Fund
Overview: Small and Growing Businesses (SGBs) in developing countries are key drivers of equitable economic growth and social development. They create stable, formal sector employment in local communities and catalyze local value chains. They give women and youth the chance to earn fair wages and seize new opportunities. What’s more, SGBs deliver vital goods and services to their communities., , When SGBs thrive, they help emerging economies achieve their long-term development goals, reduce poverty and inequality, and play a major role in transforming lives. However, globally, SGBs, face a $2 trillion credit gap, dubbed the “missing middle”. The most critical funding gap is $5-$25 thousand, which traditional financiers tend to avoid due to high costs and perceived risk., , The SGB Fund gives investors the opportunity to support entrepreneurs with powerful tools for growth, to empower economic equality and to strengthen economies in developing countries. It’s an opportunity to make a unique social impact while earning a return on a financial investment.
