An initiative aimed at funding businesses that operate solely in previously disadvantaged communities. We fund individuals and groups who have existing businesses in these communities and those who are seeking expansion or expansionary acquisitions. We aim to accelerate and encourage greater participation of these communities in the economy of the developing countries in which we operate. We firmly believe that the growth of any society is dependent on accelerating the creation of sustainable jobs and developing the middle-income group.
Our targeted businesses must have current operations in previously disadvantaged communities and have a proven track record of operating for a minimum of three years. The founder must have full-time involvement in the current operations, and the business forecast must indicate high job creation and 40% gross profit margin with great potential for franchise opportunity.
We offer further enterprise development assistance with payroll, financial systems, business management, marketing, branding, trademarks and franchising mentorship.
