As a social investor SIDI financially supports its partners.

Depending of their needs, this support can take different shapes:


Equity investment is our privileged tool because it lets us involve on a long term basis, in particular by participating in governing bodies.


Their amount and terms of payment are adapted to the partner’s needs, eg investment loans, seasonal credits…

Loan guarantees

Guarantees let SIDI help its partners obtain loans from local banks,with a leverage effect.

Search for additional funding

SIDI’s team devotes part of its time to the search for additional funding from international institutions.


If financial contributions are often crucial to our partners’ growth, they are inseparable from the supply of technical assistance. It is the complementarity of these two means that let the partnership between SIDI and local institutions work.
