Opes-Lcef provides patient capital and management support to early-stage enterprises in developing countries, emerging countries, and since 2018, in Italy to tackle poverty and benefitting low-income people.
Opes-Lcef has a portfolio of 20 investments (equity and debt) in social and impact businesses providing solutions to social problems in key areas such as energy, low carbon emissions, environmental conservation access to water, sanitation, education, and in enterprises that address social inequalities and focus on empowerment of vulnerable and disadvantaged groups such as migrants, women, and young people. We deploy capital using gender and refugee lens investing.
We support the social impact ecosystem by organizing training initiatives, "boot-camps", for social entrepreneurs, aspiring entrepreneurs, young people, and others. We actively promote private sector solutions to locally address poverty and inequality.
