We are the Dutch entrepreneurial development bank. We support sustainable private sector growth in developing and emerging markets by investing in businesses, projects and financial institutions.
We believe in a world where, in 2050, more than nine billion people live well and within the means of the planet's resources.
In pursuit of this vision, FMO's mission is to empower entrepreneurs to build this better world. To that end, FMO invests in businesses, projects and financial institutions, by providing capital, knowledge and networks to support sustainable growth. We do this with the ultimate goal of empowering people to apply their skills and improve their own quality of life.
We have set ourselves the goal to ‘Become your preferred partner to invest in local prosperity’. Our strategy is aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), building on increased focus and impact in our activities.
• We will steer on our contribution to the SDGs in general, and three in particular: decent work and economic growth (SDG8), reduced inequalities (SDG10) and climate action (SDG13).
• To be effective in supporting local prosperity, we aim to become the preferred partner to our key stakeholders.
• We focus on three sectors where we can have the biggest impact: financial institutions, energy and agribusiness, food & water.
Our goal to ‘invest in local prosperity’ is not only important for local people, but also for the Netherlands. Decent work, less inequality and climate action create local stability. This is important for the Netherlands and the countries close to us, for example in the circle around Europe and in Africa.
We help Dutch businesses to realize their ambitions and create positive impact in developing and emerging countries. As FMO's NL Business team, we have the mission to create partnerships that lead to shared value for both your business and for local markets.
We specialize in project development, export finance and investment solutions. We craft financing solutions to support commercially viable businesses and strategic government projects that contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals.
These global goals require partnerships that go beyond borders; between Dutch businesses, commercial banks, NGOs, foreign governmental organizations, and the private sector in developing and emerging countries.
