Posted on: 16 June, 2020 at 10:27 AM

Chicago-based impact investor VestedWorld has invested in Rwanda-based food distribution company GET IT, according to a report by ImpactAlpha.

VestedWorld is an early-stage investment fund manager that invests in emerging market companies that have the potential to generate competitive financial returns while contributing towards the growth and development of the markets in which they are located.

GET IT is one of the largest distributors of fresh produce and dry goods in Rwanda, supplying most of the country’s leading hotels and restaurants. In doing so, the company has grown to be among one of the largest farmer contractors in the country.

Earlier this year, Chandaria Capital, the professional early-stage investment arm of the Chandaria Group of Companies, also announced an investment in GET IT.
