With the help from an outstanding staff and a first-class group of stakeholders and advisors, we are closing a $47,000,000 private investment fund and have raised an additional $12,000,000 in grants from donors to benefit the non-profit arm of GBF.
In recent months, GBF has made substantial progress in building and maintaining a well performing fund that is generating social impact and a financial return for our investors.
Some of GBF’s key results to date are as follows:
• GBF has made 6 new investments through the fund, which brings the total number of clients in the fund portfolio to 16. This totals almost $14,000,000 in committed capital.
• 1,470,000 people have more affordable and quality goods, services, and jobs; and 46,000 artisans, farmers, employees, and entrepreneurs impacted.
