Introducing the Women's Livelihood Bond

A US$8 million bond for impact enterprises and microfinance institutions to grow their businesses and scale social impact. The world’s first listed bond with dual focus on financial and social returns, empowering the lives of over 385,000 women in Southeast Asia.

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

The IIX Women’s Livelihood Bond is open-sourced. You can read the blueprint now to learn more.

This blueprint paper is made possible through the support of the Rockefeller Foundation.

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.
