Impact Investment

AXenS will support the development of the impact investment market both through its trade finance and supply chain management facilities. In particular we want to see more investment focused on:

  • inclusive, accessible, affordable innovations that address major social needs
  • delivering positive social outcomes regardless of legal form
  • the standard of evidence of a venture’s impact
  • profitable, sustainable and resilient business models capable of scaling their impact

Opportunity Set: Meso-Credit


Small to medium enterprises often cannot get finance from both banks and microcredit institutions. Thus the provision of “mesocredit” to this missing middle. AXenS would focus, not only on trade finance, but also on the tail-end of the production cycle to render the products export ready.

The extensive financing gap for Small and Medium Enterprises stretches across most emerging market regions. It is mainly due to:

  • Having little or no access to financing - they lack the traditional parameters for credit assessment
  • Level of sophistication
  • Financial constraints - working capital and reserves
  • Lack of accessing payment for their products promptly through appropriate financial engineering
