Through its managed funds, Inpulse supports a range of institutions covering MFIs and credit unions up to medium size banks with total assets between EUR 1.5 M and EUR 3 billion.
Since the launch of CoopEst operations in 2006, Inpulse has granted loans to 39 partner institutions in 13 countries for a total outstanding amount of EUR 38,9 M. More than the half of the outstanding portfolio is dedicated to support small and medium-size MFIs that are strongly involved in the local development of disadvantaged areas. Our MFI partners serve vulnerable groups excluded from financial services: the average loan size to final clients is around 2000 EUR. Most of the cooperative banks CoopEst finances in Poland – representing 30% of the portfolio – are located in semi-urban and rural areas and they are often the only financial institutions providing access to credit in those areas.
CoopMed has an objective of EUR 20M investment capacity with a first tranche closed in September 2015. As of today 2 investment decisions have been taken for a total of EUR 1.1M and the current pipeline is being developed in Lebanon, Tunisia and Jordan.
