    Partner in Micro Leasing

    In emerging economies, such as Rwanda and Kenya, DLL helps to develop and improve access to local financial infrastructures for low-income entrepreneurs. We do it through our Micro Leasing Advisory Services.

    Our goal is to support these Micro Finance Institutions in developing an alternative micro finance product that increases the financial inclusion of low-income entrepreneurs to support their business success. Here’s a snapshot of our work:

    • Partnering with the Rabo Foundation to provide expertise and training on asset-based financing and leasing at local Micro Finance Institutions
    • Advising Micro Finance Institutions in the efficiency and quality of their credit assessments
    • Swapping of assets during the lease life Raising funds for Micro Leasing through our DLL Micro Leasing Fund, supported by our employees (in cooperation with Rabobank Client Fund, part of the Rabo Foundation).
