We aim to address society's biggest challenges of extreme poverty and environmental degradation by bridging the gap between investors and emerging market social enterprises who are in the best position to solve these problems but who find it most difficult to secure long-term funding.
What we know
What we do
We pool funds from foundations and Donor Advised Funds and provide loans of $50,000 to $500,000 that enable emerging markets social enterprises to acquire revenue-producing or cost-reducing equipment to increase the scale and pace of their impact.
Loans are assessed for both impact and credit by Beneficial Returns’ eight-member credit committee composed of volunteers with extensive experience in banking, philanthropy, structured finance, law, and international development.
