Kinyeti Capital Ltd is a pilot post conflict investment facility in the Republic of South Sudan established by Norfund and Swedfund with co-funding (first loss facility)from the Norwegian Embassy in Juba and possible Sida. The purpose is to provide primarily mezzanine debt funding for small and medium enterprises in South Sudan.
Small and medium-sized enterprises in South Sudan have very limited access to finance. Kinyeti Venture Capital will offer companies in the country loans and equity, and make investments of between 275 000 and 5 million NOK.
Today the South Sudanese import almost everything which is consumed in the capital Juba and in the rest of the country, and the potential for companies producing even the simplest consumer and agricultural products are therefore great. It is very important for the development of Southern-Sudan that international investors enter the market so that jobs and income can be created for the local population.
