PROSPER Salone is a grant matching facility financed by the UK Government. We support investment in Sierra Leone by funding activities aimed at reducing the risks of market entry, such as scoping trips, feasibility studies, pipeline development, due diligence and business viability.

The applications for both the GENERAL and CLIMATE PROSPER windows are open on a rolling basis. However, we encourage interested applicants to submit their forms before 15 January 2024 to be included in the round of evaluations taking place by February 2024. Any future rounds of evaluation will be subject to applications received and the overall Invest Salone strategy and budgets.

Check if you are eligible to apply by visiting the PROSPER Salone GENERAL or CLIMATE window web pages.
