Message from Leadership

Empowering African businesses, their communities and people has always been at the core of what we do. When we started AfricInvest 30 years ago, nobody called this impact investing, whereas nowadays we are praised for being an impact investor. Although the wording might have changed, we have had the same focus and beliefs: providing businesses with the capital they need, supporting quality job creation in the private sector, and expanding access to essential products and services. Making a difference has always been our way of doing business.
