Vision and mission
FMO finances entrepreneurs from developing countries because we believe a thriving private sector fuels economic and social progress.
Entrepreneurship is the key to creating sustainable economic growth and improving people’s living standards. We invest in companies, financial institutions and projects with capital and knowledge, and we do it with the ultimate goal of empowering people to employ their skills and improve their own quality of life.
Our business is fuelled by a vision that we share with the World Business Council for Sustainable Development: a world in 2050 in which nine billion people live well and within the limits of the planet’s resources. Within this vision, FMO’s mission is to empower entrepreneurs to build a better world.
