Increasing and deepening the supply of impact capital

Increasing The Supply Of Impact Capital​

Supply Working Group

The supply of impact capital working group identified the priority challenges as follows: poor availability of early-stage funding, scarcity of local currency denominated funds that support early-stage enterprises, and lack of incentives to supply-side players to finance impact initiatives. Based on this, it recommended increasing and deepening the supply of impact capital for investments in MSMEs and social organizations.

The impact investing landscape in Nigeria is dominated by Development Finance Institutions (DFIs) who are responsible for deploying 85% of impact capital in the country, leaving non-DFIs to provide the remaining capital.[1]  DFIs by their nature spur economic development in emerging economies by investing in the private sector to promote job creation and sustainable economic growth
