We deal with funding programmes below in cooperation with several consulting agencies .
The Dutch Trade and Investment Fund (DTIF)
DTIF is a fund from the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs to finance private sector investments in eligible countries. DTIF is funded by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs and is managed by the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO).
Eligible applicants
DTIF is available for international investment and export by Dutch companies.
DTIF can finance up to €15 million by a loan and/or a guarantee. In case of a loan for an investment, DTIF generally funds 49% of the total financing. In case of a guarantee for an investment, the maximum is 60% of the financing. In case of export financing, up to 85% of the transaction may be covered.

Focus area

The investment and/or export cannot alternatively be (fully) financed by commercial sources (read: commercial banks). DTIF is not allowed to compete with commercial financing sources but can only finance where (full) commercial financing is not available – due to a lack of collateral, for instance. DTIF financing cannot replace commercial financing that has already been extended for the same purpose.


The Dutch Good Growth Fund (DGGF) offers entrepreneurs financing for their projects in countries in Africa, Latin America, Asia and Eastern Europe. The purpose of the fund is to stimulate economic and social progress through trade and investments in emerging markets and developing countries.
Eligible applicants
Dutch small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs) that want to invest in and/or export to one of the countries included in the country list (refer to the sections below)
Local small and medium-sized businesses in one of the countries included in the DGGF country list (refer to the sections below)
Focus area
DGGF believes it is vital that Dutch and local entrepreneurs work responsibly in emerging markets and developing countries. Entrepreneurs with good proposals that are relevant to development can apply to the DGGF for loans, guarantees, and share capital (via intermediary funds).
Dutch SMEs planning to invest in a business located in one of the DGGF countries may apply for a loan up to 49% (€10 million) or a guarantee up to 60% of the financing required. The Dutch SME is required to fund at least 20% of the investment from its own resources and close any gap with commercial bank financing. This part of DGGF is managed by RVO, the agency of the Government of the Netherlands.
Dutch SMEs planning to export to a buyer in one of the DGGF countries may apply for export credit insurance (up to €15 million) and, in case of Least Developed Countries, for export financing (up to €2 million). 
SMEs companies in DGGF countries can apply for funding (equity, convertible debt of ordinary debt) from impact funds supported by DGGF.
