Manan Trust provided AVPN with a 3-year grant to build the social investing ecosystem in Myanmar. Participation in the local annual forum more than doubled in 3 years, and its success catalysed the expansion into a Southeast Asia-wide convening, which will kickstart in 2020. These convenings drove a maturity in the space and an understanding of the need for collaboration across investors, intermediaries, policymakers and social purpose organisations.

While social enterprises struggle to get the right resources to scale, funders find it challenging to have a pipeline of investable opportunities. To help SEs become investment-ready, Credit Suisse partnered with AVPN to pilot the SEs Development Toolkit, based on Village Capital VIRAL pathway. The Toolkit provides a common language framework and a self assessment tool for SEs to identify relevant resources needed from funders to scale. AVPN members use the platform to share their resources and reach SEs that are ready to absorb the capital to grow.

Women face disproportionate challenges in the region compared to their male counterparts. AVPN is taking a deeper dive into gender issues to mobilize more capital into gender solutions. To achieve this, AVPN and Investing in Women have partnered on a multi-year programme to increase the amount of social investment capital that applies a gender lens to build more equitable and inclusive societies.

This programme involves landscape research, clinics and training workshops to strengthen the effectiveness of practitioners in the sector. We are excited to be drawing together a range of resources providers to increase the movement of funds with a gender lens towards better outcomes for women and girls in Asia.
