WLB is structured to create a “basket” (Special Purpose Vehicle- SPV) of Impact Enterprise issuers. Through that SPV, WLB raises funds from investors seeking financial and social returns.


Proceeds from the bond are lent to the basket of Microfinance Institutions and Impact Enterprises whose activities benefit women


Microfinance Institutions and Impact Enterprises are better able to serve women beneficiaries and improve their access to finance, essential goods, income-generating assets and vocational training

We monitor the borrowers’ social performance, including calculating their Social Return on Investment (SROI).
