The Centre secured a debt facility from FS Impact Finance, a group company of the renowned Frankfurt School of Finance & Management in June 2021. The transaction was concluded after a novel virtual due diligence exercise, and marked the return of the Centre to international microfinance investment market since 2018, due to the scarcity of appropriate hedging options and the impact of COVID-19. The funding will contribute to the growth of the lending portfolio, as the Centre is set to rebound from the effects of the pandemic on its operations. Other funding arrangements with international investment vehicles are being concluded.
