UNCDF and Bamboo Capital launch SME loan fund for Zimbabwean SMEs

The UNCDF has partnered with Bamboo Capital Partners to launch the Bamboo-UNCDF Initiative for the BUILD Fund, aimed at driving financial support to SDG-focused businesses in the least developed countries (LDCs).This initiative supports enterprises with high social impact but high financial risk, targeting areas underserved by traditional financiers. The BUILD Fund, supported by the BUILDER TA Facility, pioneers a unique investment approach in SMEs within LDCs. 

The EOI specifically seeks organizations with growth capital needs aligned with the BUILD Fund's financing instruments, emphasizing market relevance, scalability, and positive socio-economic impact. Eligible organizations are invited to express their interest for potential collaboration.
