Boost Capital Private Limited

Cambodia Financial services

Boost built the first end-to-end digital microfinance institution in its pilot market of Cambodia and had distributed over $350,000 in loans (both secured and unsecured). With a medium-term goal of expanding regionally, Boost’s vision has been to provide lower cost, more convenient financial services to ASEAN’s unbanked and underbanked population.

We are invested in Boost Capital Private Limited (Wild Card) through Insitor Impact Asia Fund Private Limited, which is managed by Swiss-Asia Financial Services Pte. Ltd. For further information on the fund, the fund manager, and the expected impact of the fund’s investment, click here.
