Project description
Leopard Haiti Fund, LP (the “Fund”) is a ten-year Cayman Islands based private equity fund established to help recapitalize the Haitian private sector following the January 2010 earthquake. The Fund will make investments in small and medium enterprises (SMEs), targeting priority sectors such as affordable housing, renewable energy, food production, and tourism, while opportunistically considering investments in other basic sectors. The Fund aims to raise $75 million primarily from IFIs, foundations, impact investors and high net worth individual investors. A related $3 to $5 million Technical Assistance facility will be sought from donors to promote capacity development within potential target companies.
