Your 3 benefits:

  1. Dividend: in 2012 the dividend amounted to 2.5%. Incofin cvso does not strive for a maximum dividend, only for a fair one. First and foremost, we want our investments to achieve a major social impact. Furthermore, Incofin cvso is not in a position to guarantee future returns.
  2. For the first EUR 190 of the dividend, you will not have to pay a withholding tax.
  3. Tax break of 5% of the invested amount: Incofin cvso is an accredited development fund for microfinancing. In consequence, you can obtain a tax break by investing in this fund. Be sure to read the conditions for tax break.

Why would you invest in microfinancing?

Poor people in developing countries have limited access to the services provided by regular commercial banks, either because their income is too low or because they live in secluded areas. Microfinance Institutions (MFIs) specifically target these people. People with ideas and a sense of initiative can borrow a small amount (microcredit) from an MFI, intended for investment in their own micro-enterprise. This loan leads to a higher standard of living and a greater capacity to cope for the borrower, who contributes to the growth of the local economy. Today, approximately 150 million people have access to microcredit, through more than 10,000 active MFIs worldwide.

Invest through Incofin cvso. Your contribution helps people in developing countries to build a decent life for themselves…

Become shareholder

Between 1 January and 30 June, you may withdraw (completely or partially) as an Incofin cvso shareholder by writing. This is free of charge. When you withdraw, you are entitled to the distribution of the nominal deposit.
