The Project consists of an investment in the BlueOrchard Latin America and the Caribbean Gender, Diversity, and Inclusion Fund S.C.A., SICAV-RAIF (the “Fund”), the first private debt Gender, Diversity & Inclusion (“GDI”) fund in Latin America and the Caribbean (“LAC”).

The Fund will be managed by BlueOrchard Finance Ltd. (the “Fund Manager” or “BlueOrchard”), a leading global impact investment manager with more than 21 years of experience and track record in microfinance and financial inclusion, and more than US$4 billion in Assets under Management (“AUM”).
