“The blue moon fund has been a long-term partner and supporter of S3IDF since the early days of the foundation. Their SMBA is unique in that it leverages relatively small amounts of grant funding to build up, educate, and engage local financial institutions in their support of small and medium enterprises (SMEs) and ensures their sustainability in the years to come.”

– Dr. Ji-Qiang Zhang, Vice President of Programs, blue moon fund


S3IDF partners and collaborates with international development institutions and government agencies, local banks and financial institutions, practitioner networks, nonprofit and community-based organizations, and technology and equipment providers.

“S3IDF was instrumental in facilitating a loan program for the operators of [Bengaluru’s] municipal corporation-owned Dry Waste Collection Centers. [Since] all the operators are either waste-pickers or scrap dealers[,] cash loans for the regular [operation] of businesses are very difficult to get in the open market, [leaving few alternatives] except [for the] local money lender at a very high interest.”

– Nalini Shekar, Co-Founder, Hasirudala
