SANAD’s Donors & Investors

The SANAD Fund for MSME is open to public and private donor institutions, international financial institutions and investors. As a public-private partnership, SANAD is uniquely positioned to leverage donor funds and mobilize private capital that might otherwise not be attracted to the sector.

Current investors are the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), the European Union, KfW Development Bank, Switzerland's State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO)Oesterreichische Entwicklungsbank (OeEB) , Germany's GLS Bank and the Dutch Development Bank FMO.

The funding of the European Union is part of the EU Initiative for Financial Inclusion: "The EU Initiative for Financial Inclusion is a comprehensive programme to help small and medium sized businesses in the Southern and eastern Mediterranean region to become more competitive and grow. Through finance and know-how we are boosting development and creating jobs." 

In addition, the Fund is open to various types of investors such as development finance institutions, international financial institutions as well as private investors. Finance in Motion and Hauck & Aufhäuser Fund Services have also joined as private investors.
