USD 3mln Debt Finance To Humo

We kicked off another impactful year by successfully facilitating a loan transaction of USD 3 million from Invest in Visions GmbH to Humo in Tajikistan!

Dr. Andrij Fetsun (CEO of AFI) said:

“ Headed by Mrs. Mavsuda Vaisova, General Director, HUMO is one of the leading MFIs in Tajikistan providing quality, affordable financial resources. IIV’s investment helps the organisation to pursue its commitment to promote small and medium-sized businesses. Besides strong financials and legal structures, our AFISAR© Tool shows that HUMO’s operations are overall sustainable based on the #SDGs, performing particularly well on #SDG1 (No Poverty), #SDG8 (Decent Work & Economic Growth) and #SDG16 (Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions)”

Humo serves over 65k active clients (45% women), such as the remarkable self-made entrepreneur Nodira who took a loan from HUMO to open a canteen in Isfisor (north-west Tajikistan) serving a variety of national dishes, such as “sambusa” (Tajik pies stuffed with meat). Nodira’s story is just one of many examples illustrating the empowerment & economic development of local entrepreneurs.
