TriLinc Global Impact Fund provides growth capital to Small and Medium Enterprises (SME) in developing economies that provide the opportunity to achieve both competitive financial returns and positive measurable impact. TriLinc identifies those economies with a stable political environment, well-established regulatory and compliance structures, and where access to affordable capital is significantly limited.
As of August 31, 2016, the company has loan commitments of more than $206 million in 18 countries throughout South America, Europe, and Africa, with primary impact objectives around job creation, agricultural productivity, and capacity building.
TriLinc is committed to investing for impact and their decision to loan money to these enterprises includes a review of the business’ commitment to sustainable business practices and their potential to deliver positive, measurable impact.
At Access Ventures we seek mission-alignment in every area of our work. TriLinc is an example of a partner that provides impact through lending and a market-rate return to us as investors. We met TriLinc through our partnership with Collaboration Capital, where we make market investments through impact-aligned partners.
