Project Description
If provided by the financial institution, the Early Warning System Team writes a short summary describing the purported development objective of the project and project components. Review the complete project documentation for a detailed description.

According to DFC, the Fund is expected to have a highly developmental impact through its deployment of up-to $100 million of capital into 20 to 25 equity investments in small- and medium-sized enterprises operating in the digital health,
fin-tech, and digital micro-insurance markets located in Southeast and South Asia.

The COVID-19 pandemic has ended a decade-long economic expansion by plunging the Southeast Asian and South Asian regional economies into recessions. The Fund will make investments in SMEs, which support social infrastructure providing critical services and goods in the healthcare, insurance, and financial inclusion sectors. In the regions of the Fund’s focus, there are an estimated 650 million people unbanked and healthcare and insurance coverage are below
global averages. In addition, the collective SME finance gap for the regions stand at over $560 billion.

The Project has been reviewed against DFC's 2020 Environmental and Social Policy Procedures ("ESPP") and has been determined to be categorically eligible. Equity investments into funds are screened as a Category D activity for the purposes of environmental and social assessment

Contact Information
This section aims to support the local communities and local CSO to get to know which stakeholders are involved in a project with their roles and responsibilities. If available, there may be a complaint office for the respective bank which operates independently to receive and determine violations in policy and practice. Independent Accountability Mechanisms receive and respond to complaints. Most Independent Accountability Mechanisms offer two functions for addressing complaints: dispute resolution and compliance review.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF THE UNITED STATES INTERNATIONAL DEVELOPMENT FINANCE CORPORATION (DFC)

The Office of Accountability is an independent office that addresses complaints about environmental or social issues related to DFC-supported projects. The office provides communities an opportunity to have concerns independently reviewed and addressed.
