Goodwell West Africa Microfinance Fund

Goodwell Investments BV, Netherlands (Sponsors and Initiators) in partnership with JCS Investments Ltd., Ghana (local Fund Manager) is pleased to introduce the Goodwell West Africa Microfinance Fund, a Fifty Million US Dollar (US$ 50,000,000) wholesale microfinance equity fund with a one-third allocation to Ghana. The Ghana Fund was launched in Accra in March 2010 to help scale -up operations of microfinance institutions in the country.

The Fund, which is the first microfinance equity fund in Ghana, is to be invested in entrepreneurial microfinance institutions (MFIs) with the goal of creating a substantial social impact and attractive financial returns. The Fund is founded on the principal belief that improving access to affordable financial services for people at the "Base of the Pyramid" contributes to sustainable development, and that this improvement can best be achieved by developing and scaling up entrepreneurial microfinance institutions.
