Media Development Loan Fund is a non-profit investment fund for independent news media in emerging democracies. Most MDLF financing is given in the form of loans, finance leases or equity in the operation. Loans and finance leases have terms of four to seven years, including grace periods of six months to one year for beginning principal repayment. We also provide some limited grants. We have provided financing to independent media companies in Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe, South and Central America. We can provide up to $500,000 in loan, equity, or finance leases.
