Impact Performance


Impact thesis

Impacto Capital's Mozambique SME Impact Fund is the first impact focused investment vehicle in Mozambique focusing on “missing middle” SME funding. Firms receiving investment through the fund must show significant potential for growth and substantial contribution to the fund’s key impact metrics. Companies must be ESG compliant and have a clear growth and impact strategy.
Target impacts include the transfer of skills and technology, environmental conservation, job creation, and provision of goods and services to lower-income consumers. While the fund is not sector-specific, companies in the extractive and real estate industries are excluded from consideration.
