Invest in South America

The Social Enterprise Loan Fund provides debt capital to high-impact enterprises in South America that are advancing job creation for individuals most in need.

High-impact enterprises need patient, flexible capital with return
expectations aligned with the costs and risks they face in achieving positive social changes.

You can help to realize the first impact investing relationship for 100 high impact enterprises in South America that will improve the incomes of 30,000 people most in need in the next 10 years.

For every $100 you donate, you’ll personally be freeing up $1,000 in readily accessible capital for a high impact social enterprise in the region from social investors who have already made commitments to the fund.
