Impact Intentionality

Our investment in Parkville closely aligns with our fund's impact thesis, to support sustainable and innovative businesses in emerging markets, that promote self-sufficiency and job creation in local economies. Through employment opportunities and completion of a new in-house manufacturing facility, the company contributes to technology transfer and skills development, while fostering a sustainable ecosystem of local suppliers and partners.
This shift also enables better control over production processes, ensuring product quality and consumer safety.
Parkville already provides high quality, and affordable products to women, who represent 80% of its customer base. In line with our commitment to gender lens investing, we see further opportunities for developing portfolio brands and channeling innovation towards products that better serve women’s consumption needs. Our post investment stewardship efforts will also focus on initiatives linked to sustainable packaging and climate change.
