Vorige week bereikte ons het bericht dat het onze Keniaanse partner NewLight Africa niet is gelukt nieuwe financiering aan te trekken om de hieronder genoemde (nieuwe) strategie uit te kunnen voeren. Een internationale crediteur van NewLight Africa heeft dientengevolge besloten de uitstaande gelden op te eisen.

Helaas betekent deze ontwikkeling dat investeringen in deze partner volledig zullen moeten worden afgeschreven. Alle investeerders in deze partner zijn inmiddels ingelicht.
