Entrepreneurial Development Bank


Doing makes the Difference

2018 annual report

FMO is the Dutch development bank

We invest in growth and frontier 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.
