Small cap funds investing in Africa?

Hey guys, I'm starting a quasi-PE shop in Accra, Ghana 500k to 10m USD deals. Not your traditional PE shop (happy to explain how it's different) but has anyone done any deals within this ticket range? or know of any companies that invest in small and growing businesses on the continent? Cheers
