Elodie Nocquet, Director ESG & Impact at I&P, publishes an article in the Revue Secteur Privé & Développement entitled "Boosting CSR in African SMEs: the experience of an impact investor"
"The African entrepreneurs with whom we work are often as committed to their country’s development as they are to running a successful business. This dual motivation tends to produce entrepreneurs who are admirably courageous and tenacious, since setting up a business in the countries in which we operate is both risky and challenging. The commitment of these entrepreneurs is reflected in initiatives – especially social – such as better living conditions for employees and projects benefiting local communities."
