We created the ngo Alterfin Guarantee Fund in 2000. Our objective: to provide more than financing by offering the support our partners need for their development.
Alterfin invests funds to support partners with little or no access to the traditional financial sector because of their ‘high-risk’ profile. For them to be able to develop and maximize their social and environmental impact, they need support that goes beyond mere financing.
With the Alterfin Guarantee Fund, we can expand our services to encourage our partners’ long-term growth and help them earn the trust of other stakeholders (investors, financing organizations, buyers, etc.).
The Alterfin Guarantee Fund is financed by donations from individuals and institutions, and currently has about two million euros at its disposal.
