Aavishkaar Goodwell India Microfinance Development Company II is Goodwell’s second India focused micro-finance development company. It provides private equity and active support to entrepreneurial micro-finance organisations.
AGIMDC II’s goal is to increase the outreach of commercial micro-finance organisations and to provide a market rate of return to the investors. It builds on the success of its predecessor AGIMDC II. The fund is again managed in joint venture with Aavishkaar Investment Management Services, is professionally run with a dedicated team, and is funded by professional investors.
AGIMDC II achieved its first closing in December 2010 in the midst of the micro-finance crisis which reiterated investor confidence in the investment team’s ability to identify and invest in promising enterprises in the micro-finance sector. It’s second closing happened in June 2012 at USD$31 million with a mandate to invest in the micro-finance and financial inclusion space. AGIMDC II raised its capital on the strategy that it would extend the horizon of early stage investing to include merger and acquisition and micro-finance housing and technology based interventions.
