Investment initiatives

ISCM Foundation provides services to a number of entrepreneurs in Africa, testing solutions for sustainability and facilitating the financing of projects.

Emalahleni Growth project

Proof of Concept for socio economic growth in a local municipality in rural South Africa. ISCM Foundation prepared a proof of concept for bankable projects in Emalahleni.
