Billions of people lack access to affordable, high-quality basic goods and services and livelihood opportunities. This represents an underserved demand of a multi-trillion US-Dollar market. We view this as an extraordinary opportunity for market-based solutions in sectors that are building blocks for empowering underserved people and their communities.
