What We Do

- Direct investments in the development phase of water initiatives
- Transaction advisory services
- Technical support
- Fundraising support
By providing early-stage capital and finance expertise to implementers, KIFFWA supports initiatives across all water sub-sectors to reach financial close. KIFFWA seeks to become a self-sufficient organization and therefore seeks to refund at the financial close in the form of a success fee, a debt, mezzanine or an equity stake in the initiative.
KIFFWA supports Lead Developers who demonstrate a strong track record of project development and who have professional management and strong industry knowledge. KIFFWA works with clearly defined lead developers and does not work through intermediaries or brokers. KIFFWA typically finances a maximum of 50% of the development budget subject to a maximum of EUR 500,000.
