The MASSIF fund provides much needed financial resources to small businesses and micro-entrepreneurs (MSMEs) by supporting the local financial intermediaries and institutions that can contribute to their development. MASSIF invests through a variety of instruments, from local currency debt and mezzanine structures to direct equity and investment funds. MASSIF also offers capacity development (CD) grants to strengthen its investees; these funds are deployed to finance risk management systems, management training, product development, independent board seats, and other capacity-building projects.
Within a selected set of mostly low income countries, MASSIF focuses on:
- The Unbanked: Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) in least financially penetrated and fragile countries
- Agriculture and Rural Livelihoods: Small businesses in rural areas and agricultural value chain to improve the livelihoods in these communities
- Women-owned businesses and youth entrepreneurs: Creating opportunities and promoting gender equality
- Innovations in Inclusive Business: Access to basic Goods and Services
MASSIF clients can be (1) SME or commercial banks looking to expand client base by downscaling, (2) Microfinance intermediaries seeking to broaden their services in rural areas or (3) Non-governmental organizations looking to professionalize and transition into official finance entities.
MASSIF provides funding to developing countries in Africa, Asia, Europe and Latin America.
