About the fund
A catalysing role
Triodos Fair Share Fund aims to play a catalysing role in the development of the microfinance sector into a fully-fledged, integral part of the financial sector in developing countries.
Sustainability as core value
The fund provides finance – both debt and equity – to financial institutions that demonstrate a sustainable approach toward providing financial services to under-served client groups. Triodos Fair Share Fund increasingly finances non-traditional microfinance institutions. Examples include leasing companies or specialist banks that focus on the lower income strata in the market and have sustainability as an objective.
Renewable energy and sustainable agriculture
In addition, the fund plans to focus on institutions that stimulate the use of sustainable energy by means of their financial services, or promote sustainable agriculture by offering special financial services.
