The Uhuru Investment Partners (Uhuru), a middle-market private equity firm based out of Lagos and Abidjan, has announced the first close of Uhuru Growth Fund I (UGF) at $113 million, with capital support from the CDC Group, the UK’s development finance institution (DFI), along with other DFI partners, commercial and Impact Investors.

In addition to CDC, UGF is backed by commercial investors AfricaGrow and Kuramo Capital, in addition to DFIs including European Investment Bank, DEG, SIFEM and Finnfund. Commitment from Uhurus partners will provide the vital capital to support local businesses economic revival from the COVID-19 pandemic and boost trade across the continent.
