What is Oxfam Novib Impact Investments?
Oxfam Novib believes that Impact investments are critical in creating inclusive, sustainable and fair economies that tackle poverty and inequality. Through strategic investments in impactful entrepreneurs and providing climate risk finance to Micro Finance Institutions (MFIs), Oxfam Novib is dedicated to fostering sustainable businesses in developing countries.
With approximately 70 million euros, Oxfam Novib Impact Investments focuses on supporting vulnerable groups, specifically rural entrepreneurs and small-scale food producers affected by the consequences of climate change.
Oxfam Novib has been investing in improving the financial sector in developing countries since the 1970s, with a focus on delivering financial services to people living in vulnerability, particularly women, as a means to poverty reduction. In 1996-1997, Oxfam Novib formulated and adopted an inclusive finance approach to support starting and expanding microfinance institutions (MFIs).One year later, our first impact investment fund was born, the Oxfam Novib Fund. Since its establishment in 1998, Oxfam Novib Fund has been leading the way in promoting systemic change.
Nowadays, we promote climate resilience, impact entrepreneurship, and facilitate access to fair and financial services through the Oxfam Novib Fund and the Pepea fund.
We have two ongoing investments - Oxfam Novib Fund and Pepea Fund.
Our funds – Pepea and Oxfam Novib Funds focus on the following sustainable development goals.
