Our investment in MCP III will support well-established local firms that demonstrate strong potential for growth. Investments in these businesses will provide the capital and expertise to support expansion and will help create new direct and indirect jobs, particularly for semiskilled/unskilled workers in a region where youth unemployment is a particular challenge.
