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.

IFC proposes an equity investment of up to US$15 million in Faering Capital Evolving Fund III Limited (the “Fund”), a Mauritius based limited life and limited liability company. The Fund is involved in activities to provide growth capital to mid-market companies in India spanning sectors such as financial services, consumer products/services, healthcare, logistics and other consumption enabling sectors.

People Affected By This Project
People Affected By This Project refers to the communities of people likely to be affected positively or negatively by a project.

(i) Private Sector Development: Access to long-term equity capital is difficult for unlisted companies. The Fund would provide scarce and patient capital as well as expertise and guidance to support value creation. Faering's value-add to investees, through Fund I and Fund II, is visible through the robust growth in financial metrics, high job creation, and strengthening of the underlying business models.
(ii) Financial inclusion and sustainability: Access to employment opportunities for individuals, access to markets for small businesses, and operational, financial and E&S improvements in local businesses.
(iii) Market development: Support to the Indian PE industry at a time when broader investor participation has waned, through support of a local PE firm with long-term potential, operating in a segment of the market that has few growth capital managers.
