Impact Investment represents an emerging and fast evolving sector that that blends traditional development and risk capital investment. SNV has practiced impact investment advisory work for over 4 years mainly in Africa but across Asia and Latin America as well. More recently we ramped up the strategy to incorporate a newly articulated integrated value proposition. IIAS targets both the buy side, where we originate and present opportunities to asset holders of blended-mission risk capital, and on the sell side of the investment matrix, where we engage in make-ready capability development of eligible small holders and entrepreneurs. Our primary focus is and has been to delivery of capability and relevant patient investment capital to our core constituency small holders, SME and entrepreneurs along the whole value chain.

What Have we Learnt

Utilization of local capability trainers and consultants:
Highly trained, local professionals are not always present Availability of regional expertise essential

Standardization of investment criteria challenge

Matching SMEs to investor preferences: e.g. size of (agriculture )

businesses suitable for funding are often smaller than the threshold
of most fund managers and investors

Facilitation of investment alone is not enough

Need for concurrent provision of capability development services

In fragmented sub-sectors such as honey, innovation is needed to achieve scale
