The mission of REGMIFA is to foster economic development and prosperity as well as employment creation, income generation and poverty alleviation in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) through the provision of innovative financial products and, to the extent necessary, technical assistance support to eligible Partner Lending Institutions (PLIs) which serve micro-entrepreneurs and small and medium sized businesses (MSMEs).

REGMIFA's development goal is to reach and support MSMEs via PLIs. The Fund is founded on the principles of the Paris Declaration; it seeks to increase donor effectiveness by pooling resources, harmonizing standards in REGMIFA's investment and technical assistance support activities. Thus, the Fund observes the principles of sustainability and additionality, combining public mandate and market orientation. Removing the obstacles to African MSMEs and unlocking the potential of local capital markets is a priority for our investors.
