Investment funds local SMEs - Proposed transaction - Badia Impact Fund II

With this investment, DGGF will support an experienced fund manager with demonstrated impact to expand into to Egypt and potentially Tunisia, Lebanon, Morocco or Palestine.

BIF II is expected to reach a significant number of young entrepreneurs and generate above average number of jobs for youth, wherein unemployment in this segment of the population is high in the region.

By complementing financing with strategic support and access to its network, the Fund will transfer knowledge to the SMEs in several areas, including corporate governance, business development, human resource management and fundraising.
