But sustainable development requires driving capital to those who need it most.

 

And there is a structural inequality in access to capital between men and women.

Women face a large gap in the financial system:
they have less access to capital and face more obstacles to obtain credit and investments.

IN BLENDGROUP
WE BELIEVE THERE IS A WAY TO CHANGE

THIS SCENARIO.

Through innovative solutions and blended finance operations, we work to drive capital to new economies and projects, initiatives and companies that promote sustainable development and social inclusion.

We are a group that proposes the integration of non-profit resources, funding and development resources and private capital in hybrid operations. Our focus is to promote social impact with due institutional stability and legal certainty.

Use credit and savings methodologies to reduce transaction costs and redefine risk;
 

Open special windows for lending to women, including young women, focused on debt deleveraging and productive capacity increase;
 

Provide special assistance for women in vulnerable situations to access the solutions offered.

Women and
the economy

Facilitate women’s equal access to resources, markets and trade;

We are committed to a vision of continuity and scale expansion

We want to immediately change the lives of women who need support today, but we intend to act to strengthen structures that will continue to guarantee women's empowerment in the long term.


We will invest over US$300 million through one Global Catalytic Fund and 3 Hedge Funds in 3 pilot countries.

The Blended Finance structure provides proper conditions to enable increasing flows of capital year by year, stimulating domestic capital markets to create and expand investment and credit structures for women.
