Promoting Social Entrepreneurship in Latin America aims to reduce poverty and contribute to greater economic inclusion of vulnerable groups through social entrepreneurship

Promoting Social Entrepreneurship in Latin America is a program aiming to reduce poverty and contribute to greater economic inclusion of vulnerable groups through social entrepreneurship. 

The program made us see more clearly the social impact of our company, and the importance of our shared value model. It enabled us to think big.

To support the growing wave of social entrepreneurship, a group of leading organizations came together to accelerate the emergence and growth of social enterprises in Latin America. These efforts are carried out within the framework of the program "Promoting Social Entrepreneurship in Latin America". This strategic program provides social entrepreneurs with specific support at each stage of their development, including by providing funding through donations to help them focus full time on their project, developing skills to prepare for investment and achieve a systemic impact, and facilitating research and information exchange activities.
