Driving Sustainable Impact and Financial Returns

Harnessing the Power of Impact Investing for Sustainable Change and Financial Growth.

At SIMA, our core focus is on promoting impact investments that align with financial, social, and environmental objectives. We collaborate with individual, institutional, philanthropic, and public sector investors to develop market-based opportunities that balance risk and reward. Our primary mission is to create positive economic, social, and environmental impacts by investing in well-designed funds that uplift the lives of individuals and communities at the Bottom of the Pyramid (BOP). Our key sectors of focus include solar energy, financial inclusion, and affordable housing in some of the world’s most economically disadvantaged countries.

For impact investors, we offer compelling investment prospects in leading companies that deliver both attractive financial returns and measurable impact. To advance the field of impact investing and foster emerging impact sectors, we have established the SIMA Impact Foundation. Through this foundation, we make early-stage investments to demonstrate the potential of sectors that currently lack commercial financing opportunities. Additionally, we have introduced Sow Good Investments, which aims to provide investment opportunities at a retail level with investment as small as USD 500. This platform enables individuals to invest towards building a better world while simultaneously harnessing the potential for personal wealth creation.

About - EARF funding

“EARF funding has been timely, helping us not retrench any employees but stay afloat. Without the funding, we would have definitely closed the business. With the help of EARF, all the women sales agents were able to take care of their families.”
