Upcoming webinar on the SEAF/Homestrings Diaspora Bond – Macedonia


Diaspora can play a vital role in the growth of the Macedonian economy, but the avenues to do so are often unclear.  How can Diaspora impact entrepreneurs, help create jobs, and add to the overall prosperity of Macedonia in a formalized manner?

The Homestrings Diaspora Bond has been developed to do just that.  Launched on the Homestrings platform, the Bond will allow investors to commit to the SEAF Macedonia II Fund – which was launched to invest in Macedonian entrepreneurs – with a credit guarantee provided by USAID DCA.  But how does it all work?

SEAF, Homestrings and USAID invite you to join our webinar on March 26th to discuss the Homestrings Diaspora Bond.  The webinar will introduce the supporting members of the Bond, detail how it will work and how you can join, and the impact that an investment can make on Macedonia.
