SMEs and Impact
Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) are the principal drivers of growth in emerging markets. They typically account for between 40 and 50% of a country’s GDP and in some economies provide employment for up to 85% of the workforce. They are ideally positioned to generate substantial social and environmental impact.
Through investment in social SMEs, Willow Impact supports the development of the sector and its potential to deliver such impact. If you share this objective, please get in touch.
