SEAF Colombia Agribusiness Fund (“SCAF”) is a private equity fund that invests growth capital in small and medium-sized enterprises along the agribusiness value chain in Colombia, targeting those outside of the urban centers.
The Fund focuses on SMEs with proven track records, high growth potential, and seeking sustainable triple bottom-line returns: financial, social impact and environmental.
The Fund is managed by SEAF Management LLC (the “Fund Manager”), a Delaware Limited Liability Company wholly owned by Small Enterprise Assistance Funds (“SEAF”), via a management team located in Bogota. The primary goal of the Fund is to improve the lives of people in the rural regions of Colombia, primarily those residing in conflict affected zones. The Fund targets small and medium enterprises (SMEs) operating in the Colombia agribusiness sector.
SCAF, similar to all SEAF funds, targets double bottomline impact – attractive financial returns and strong social impact by providing equity and active business partnership to companies that have traditionally lacked access to institutional risk capital. The Fund plans to address the following United Nations Sustainable Development Goals: #1 No Poverty, #2 Zero Hunger, #5 Gender Equality, and #8 Decent Jobs and Economic Growth.
