Global Partnerships

Global Partnerships is an impact-led investor. We invest in social businesses and nonprofits who deliver high-impact products and services to people living in poverty. We believe everyone deserves the chance to earn a living, care for their families, and improve their lives. 

Our Impact

GP currently has impact-led capital deployed in more than 50 social enterprise partners in 16 countries in Latin America, the Caribbean and sub-Saharan Africa, impacting more than 2.4 million lives last year alone.

Since 1994, GP has impacted more than 7.7 million lives in 17 countries through $252 million in impact-led investments in 106 partners. We are committed to reaching the rural poor and empower women to improve their lives and the lives of their families. Among the people our partners serve, 74 percent live in rural areas and 83 percent are women.

Our Portfolio

Our Social Investment Funds provide loans to our partners to help sustain and grow proven solutions to poverty. Since 2005, we have formed five social investment funds designed to provide low-cost loans to a select portfolio of mission-driven partners while providing investors with both financial and social returns. 

Our funds provide investors with both financial and social returns. Our investors include foundations and accredited individual investors. Our investors also include religious pension funds and development banks. In addition to providing investors with a financial return, our funds deliver high social return that help people earn a living to escape poverty and improve their lives.
