Investree Bags 142 Billion Rupiah Debt Funding from responsAbility
responsAbility is an investor partner of one of the institutional lenders at Investree, Accial Capital which first entered as a lender since 2017
Investree announced another debt funding worth of $10 million (over 142 billion Rupiah) from responsAbility Investments, a Switzerland based asset manager that focuses on follow-up investments. responsAbility is an investor partner of one of the institutional lenders at Investree, Accial Capital, which first entered as a lender since 2017.
This debt funding will be redistributed to facilitate the financing needs proposed by Investree's borrower or SME players. For responsAbility, channeling funding to Investree means directly contributing to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SGDs), in relation to limited financial access for SMEs which limits job creation, triggers inequality, and hinders economic development.
Investree's Co-founder & CEO, Adrian Gunadi said, this is a very big stepping stone for Investree because in its third funding round, Accial Capital invites one of its co-investors, responAbility to participate through the Investree platform.
“In line with responsAbility's vision and mission as a sustainability investment 'home' specializing in impact, we will target funding from the responsAbility-Accial Capital partnership to finance our borrower projects with significant economic, social and environmental impacts on life, especially amidst a recovery period due to this pandemic," Adrian said in an official statement, Thursday (10/28).
One of Investree's ongoing projects is to help empower women as ultra-micro traders in the Gramindo ecosystem. These traders have group characteristics, consisting of women without access to banks and running businesses using conventional and sharia schemes. The number has reached 5,700 on the Investree platform.
For responsAbility, this is a unique credit transaction model in Southeast Asia, especially in Indonesia as it is collaborated with Accial Capital to provide financing support to SMEs through the Investree platform.
