Due to increasing globalization, developing countries have become part of our world and poverty has become a worldwide responsibility. This challenges us to take a stand. What can we do to reduce poverty? How can we make a difference?
Social projects such as medical care and education are important but do not address all of the problems involved. Sustainable economic development also has a vital role to play. However, this requires entrepreneurship as well as access to knowledge and finance. In many developing countries, access to knowledge and finance is limited. That is where Incluvest can make a difference!
Incluvest is an impact investment company that contributes to the sustainable improvement of living conditions in developing countries. Incluvest uses a combination of people and resources to invest in promising enterprises and service providers with a focus on agribusiness or a link with agricultural value chains (essential for strengthening the chain). Such investments contribute to sustainable economic development and have a positive impact on the local community and economy.
The underlying concept is 'inclusive investment': all parties in the value chain should profit from and connect with mainstream business. This includes, rather than excludes, the small farmers who grow crops and have the potential to grow themselves! Without these farmers, there is no inclusive economic development.
Using networks, creativity and expertise
Incluvest works in close cooperation with the development aid organization Woord en Daad to combine financial services with capacity building. Woord en Daad provides access to additional expertise and networks, such as access to government organizations. Incluvest and Woord en Daad have an extensive network of committed entrepreneurs and foundations in the Netherlands as well as networks in the regions Incluvest works in: Africa, Asia and Latin America. This unique combination of financial services and capacity building makes Incluvest a valuable investment partner!
