Invest for Impact Nepal (IIN) is a ground-breaking collaboration between British International Investment (BII), the Dutch Entrepreneurial Development Bank (FMO), and the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC). It is a market-shaping initiative, the first of its kind, which supports foreign direct investment into Nepal. IIN aims to accelerate responsible and impactful investment into Nepal by supporting, catalysing, and collaborating with the financial intermediary sector in Nepal to achieve a step change in growth, environmental and social impact, and investment.
Development Finance Institutions (DFIs) are specialised financial institutions that are backed either by a single national government or by multiple governments and they invest with a focus on the development agendas of emerging and frontier markets through long-term financing. The prime objective of DFIs is to promote the sustainable economic development of countries by providing growth capital to key sectors together with technical assistance (TA) in areas such as environment, social and governance (ESG) standards.
