FMO is the Dutch entrepreneurial development bank

We invest in emerging markets, supporting jobs and income generation, and improving people’s lives in those parts of the world where this makes the biggest difference. We invite others to partner with us - lowering thresholds for other financiers, opening up new markets and opportunities. We can do this because of our ability, experience and appetite to take on the most challenging investments and carry a significant share of the risk.

Doing makes the Difference

We are the do-bank. We do not just have a wish-list, we have a to-do list. In the light of pressing global challenges we feel the urgency to 'do', to persevere and to make tough decisions to enhance local prosperity. Change is never easy, but it has to happen.

Miro Forestry

The West-African timber industry has long fed off the natural resources of the region. As a result, the natural forests of, for example, Ghana have almost disappeared. At the same time, the population continues to grow and due to economic development, the demand for wood is high. This means that remaining forest resources cannot come close to sustainably supplying current demand. Miro develops timber plantations and at the same time conserves environmentally sensitive areas.

Agribusiness, food & water

We invest across the agribusiness value chain - enhancing food security, supporting sustainability and promoting inclusive development.
