Tim commented on Refugee Investment Network (RIN)

Thanks again Ikong for your good thoughts and interest in RIN. We are well aware of the needs and some of the opportunities in Uganda. Indeed, one of our Steering Committee members, Joseph Muyambanza, grew up in a camp in Uganda. And we want to do work there when resources become available. Let's stay in touch.

Hi Tarek, thanks for your note and interest. Let me try to respond to your questions but will first add one additional questions: How do we source opportunities? Indeed, when we speak to investors, sourcing (along with structuring and derisking investments) opportunities is a key point of interest. That's why we created a matchmaking platform on our site (refugeeinvestments.org). Regarding your question: RIN validates entrepreneurs' relevance through the application of the RIN refugee investment lens. Our focus is impact. Investors will of course validate financials on their own.
