REDI FUND is a social investment fund which facilitates access to finance for Roma entrepreneurs across Europe and the Balkans. REDI Team has already attracted 25% of the capital and is now in the negotiating process with several large social development funds.
REDI FUND responds to the needs of Roma entrepreneurs who are currently finding it difficult to secure funding to develop their businesses.
Its investment strategy will initially focus on providing debt capital and risk sharing mechanisms to local financial intermediaries (microfinance institutions and banks), bringing them adapted resources and incentives to support Roma entrepreneurs. In the second phase, REDI Fund aims to work directly with Roma entrepreneurs.
