According to the bank's website, "FMO's investment in Fund II will be from two government funds, MASSIF and Building Prospects. Objective of the investment is to continue supporting the first-time fund manager, Dolma, and assist the team in deploying capital towards impactful transactions that result in both economic and social impact."
"Fund II will invest in Nepal which is one of poorest 55 nations in the world and hence is classified as Least Developed Country ("LDC"). Supporting investments in LDCs is one of the core strategies of FMO and MASSIF. In addition, Dolma is one of the first private equity ("PE") fund managers focused on Nepal and has played a key role in developing the PE sector in the country. Fund II's strategy of investing in renewable energy in a country that has an energy deficit and investing in companies that need capital to grow alongside its economy (and hence simultaneously boosting it) touches another cornerstone of FMO's strategy."
According to FMO, Dolma Impact Fund II ("DIF II" of Fund II") is the follow-on fund of Dolma Impact Fund I, where FMO played an anchor investor role. DIF II has a strategy to provide scarce (growth) capital to small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in Nepal, in the healthcare, renewable energy, technology, and other sectors with high growth and impact potential. Fund II is established to generate private sector-led growth while creating positive social and environmental impact. The fund is managed by Dolma Fund Management ("Fund Manager" or "Dolma")
