Organisation summary

FMO finances entrepreneurs from developing countries because we believe a thriving private sector fuels economic and social progress.

Supporting growth, empowering people:

Entrepreneurship is key in creating sustainable economic growth and improving people’s living standards. We invest in companies, financial institutions and projects with capital and knowledge. We do it with an ultimate goal: to empower people to employ their skills and improve their own quality of life.

Committed to the future:

What we have in common with all our clients is a commitment to growing a healthy private sector in developing countries. This is how lasting development impact is generated. In practice, these entrepreneurs create jobs. By employing people to manufacture products and services, they provide income and improve living standards. Higher living standards lead to demand for schools and healthcare. This is the basis of a viable local - and national - economy.

Together with its global network, FMO offers its capital and knowledge as partners to ambitious, sustainably focused entrepreneurs and institutions in crucial sectors - so that today's developing markets can become tomorrow's thriving ones.
