REDI's mission is to empower Roma Communities by promoting existing entrepreneurs and their business using development models, coaching and access to finance. To succeed in their mission, REDI developed tools, a mapping process, and networks for Roma Entrepreneurs in 3 countries (Romania, North Macedonia, and Serbia) aiming to increase economic opportunity.
REDI established a financing mechanism in Luxembourg. REDI SV is a social investment fund which facilitates access to finance for Roma entrepreneurs across Europe and the Balkans. The REDI Team has already attracted 25% of the capital and is now in the negotiating process with several large social development funds. In the next 5 years, REDI aims to sustain and create 20.000+ jobs in Roma Communities in Central and Eastern Europe and the Balkans.
