The Meloy Fund for Sustainable Community Fisheries is an impact investment fund that incentivizes the development and adoption of sustainable fisheries by investing in small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) that support the recovery of coastal fisheries in Indonesia and the Philippines. In doing so, the Fund and its investees pursue a triple bottom line strategy: ensuring positive financial, social, and environmental outcomes.


Companies that impact the coastal fishery need to respond to long-term stresses on their supply chains, uncertain regulatory environments, and shifting consumer tastes. To compete, these SMEs need both capital and a partner to help them transition their business models for sustainability and financial success. In this way, the Meloy Fund brings a comprehensive partnership that transforms the businesses in which we invest, sustains the natural resources on which they depend and ensures that a portion of business returns benefit local fishers.
