The Call for Expressions of Interest is intended to (a) evaluate the market potential of projects that facilitate women’s access to finance and employment and (b) gather information on the challenges and needs of potential future applicants for a grant by the Facility Investing for Employment.

The information received regarding the specific type and size of investments, job creation potential etc. will offer IFE valuable information to tailor its potential subsequent Call for Proposals to the requirements of companies active in Egypt, Senegal, and Tunisia. The launch of the Call for Proposals is currently planned for the second half of 2022.

Investment projects which IFE could potentially fund would need to be operationally viable and financially sustainable. The execution of the investment until commencement of operation should not exceed 24 months. In alignment with the IFE overarching objective, the eligible projects need to also contribute to significant creation of jobs – at the entity of the project partner or additionally also at other entities (multiplier effect).



We are looking forward to hearing from you
