Social Enterprise Finance Team
SME Finance Department:
As part of the Small and Medium Enterprise (“SME”) Finance Department, the mission of the Social Enterprise Finance (“SEF”) team is to mobilize private capital into innovative, high-impact social enterprises to enable them to expand their operations and help solve critical developmental challenges. The SEF team’s client base, market focus and strategy cover a broad range of impact sectors and address the needs of people living at the base of the economic pyramid. The SEF team provides loans directly to social enterprises focused on these high-impact sectors as well as to financial intermediaries, including funds, investment companies, commercial banks and microfinance institutions.
The SME Finance Department supports American investment abroad by providing long-term loans to small and middle market clients in a wide variety of projects. OPIC reviews loan proposals that range from $500,000 to $400,000,000 for projects located in over 140 countries in which OPIC operates.
