The VisionFund business model is successful in its impact and outreach because of its access to debt capital (through ‘Capital Markets’ in developed countries) to leverage donor capital. Today VisionFund borrows c.$250m at the Global Centre (GC) and MFI levels, roughly enabling twice the volume of child impact, due to its global Capital Markets function and key lender
