Growing Blended Finance in Zambia

Blended finance investments support SMEs facing funding obstacles by combining development funding with private capital, within the same investment deals. This approach is being used to catalyse sustainable economic growth and opportunity in Zambia.

Expectation State is collaborating with Baybridge Investments to bolster the viability and expand the scale of their investments in Zambia. The collaboration aims to forge enduring partnerships and expand access to blended finance and other capital for the Rural Development Centre (RDC) concept.

The project focuses on identifying novel business development avenues and fostering relationships with pivotal stakeholders, such as government bodies, NGOs, donors, charitable foundations, and local communities.
