Co-financing grants to private and public sector partners that promote the employment of women in Egypt
On 14 November 2022, the Facility Investing for Employment launched a Call for Proposals in Egypt with a focus on Women in Business. The Call for Proposals is primarily intended to support women entrepreneurs and women-led businesses and to make financing available to projects that promote the employment of women.
Investing for Employment invites companies and public entities to submit project proposals that contribute to sustainable job creation in the private sector. To reach this goal, the Facility awards co-financing grants ranging from 1 million to 10 million euros per project. The selection of projects is based on a competitive application process and gives priority to high-quality proposals that are mature and ready for execution. It will only co-finance those projects that are rated best in terms of operational viability, financial sustainability, and job creation.
The Call for Proposals is seeking applications for four types of investment projects:
1. Not-for-profit Projects with job creation impact (no revenues): The Facility covers up to 90 % of the investment costs.
2. Not-for-profit Projects with job creation impact (generating revenues): The Facility covers up to 75 % the investment costs.
3. For-profit Projects with broader job creation impact: The Facility covers up to 35 % the investment costs.
4. For-profit Projects with job creation impact: The Facility covers up to 25 % the investment costs.
Grants range from 1 million to 10 million euros per project. The applicant is obliged to contribute own funds to complete the project finance. The level of co-financing depends on the type of project.
Potential applicants will have until 22 December 2022 at 5 pm CET, to submit concept notes. The Facility invites companies and other interested parties, whether public or private, to submit high-quality concept notes either as a consortium or individual entity.
