As a specialised development finance fund, GroFin has put inclusive growth and employment generation at the core of its business. To optimise its strategy and improve stakeholder communication, GroFin asked Steward Redqueen to provide insights into how its financing contributes to these objectives.
We developed a rigorous yet practical model to estimate the impact of GroFin’s portfolio companies on the societies they operate in. We provided GroFin with insights into both the direct and indirect contribution of portfolio companies to employment and income generation, thereby revealing previously undiscovered impacts in the value chain of its portfolio companies.
Our insights help GroFin to steer on its strategic goals, and serve as an input to stakeholder dialogue. GroFin used our results and visuals in its 2015 Impact Report.
