Discover the meaningful and measurable impact created by SIMA through our investment initiatives that drive positive change in communities and the environment.

Our Focus Areas of Impact

Driving transformative change through investments in Renewable Energy, Financial Inclusion, Affordable Housing, and Education in Africa and Asia.

Renewable Energy

SIMA’s impact investment funds, including the Off-Grid Solar and Financial Access Fund, Emerging Distributor Finance Fund, and Energy Access Relief Fund, have cumulatively placed over USD 185 million in renewable energy with leading social enterprises. These impact investments have brought access to clean energy to an estimated 23.2 million people and reduced 20.4 million metric tons of CO2 emissions. We're also planning to launch a $150-million solar fund to drive sustainability, expand clean energy access, finance 220+ MW of renewable capacity, reduce 4 million tons of carbon, and generate around 44K jobs in Africa and Asia.

Financial Inclusion

SIMA empowers responsible microfinance institutions to uplift remote communities through expanded product offerings and financial technologies, driving social outcomes.


SIMA's impact investments finance solarization in educational institutions, thus improving the reliability of electricity and lighting and yielding better educational outcomes for underserved communities. The SIMA Impact Foundation provides scholarships empowering low-income students aspiring to be impact investing leaders from developing countries and provides internships, mentoring, and support for their personal and professional growth.

Affordable Housing

SIMA's housing finance arm, Asaan Ghar Finance Limited, aims to disrupt the norm and uplift middle-class and low-income individuals by enabling them to realize their homeownership dreams. By supporting leading affordable housing firms, SIMA not only creates opportunities for home ownership but also addresses housing challenges for underserved communities across various regions. Through these combined efforts, SIMA plays a pivotal role in improving living conditions and driving socio-economic progress on a broader scale.
