To include 2 billion additional people in the economy, we must significantly scale up the reach of enterprises in frontier markets whose primary purpose is to deliver social and environmental benefit. One of the principal unmet needs of these enterprises is access to capital – but despite a growing call for the mainstreaming of impact investment, only a fraction of impact dollars has actually been invested in enterprises that create transformative economic opportunity for disenfranchised populations.

By taking innovative approaches to financing, CARE Enterprises — a for-profit subsidiary of CARE — seeks to incentivize for-benefit investees to deliver on their promises of social impact through growth that is more consistent with their business models and complex realities.

We believe that this is the most effective path to transformative economic and social impact at scale.
