International investors are increasingly interested in emerging markets.  Yet small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) continue to have difficulty finding the right financing.  XSML bridges this gap.

By providing capital and know-how to SMEs and entrepreneurs in frontier markets in Central and East Africa, we help them grow in a sustainable way.  We work with investors who share our passion to invest with impact. And with our experience in private equity and debt, and a local presence in these markets paired with a focus on operational discipline, we generate attractive returns for those investors.
