Investing in the future: Sitawi's journey in transforming impact investing in Brazil 

Since 2008, Sitawi has been a pioneer in impact investing in Brazil, providing socio-environmental loans since its foundation. Throughout its history, it has already had more than 60 organizations connected with investors and with empathetic access to capital. But it was in 2019 that it took a crucial step in its mission to expand access to impact investing in the country. The creation of Crowd Lending Platform for Positive Impact is an innovative initiative that is transforming the way people and organizations invest in businesses with positive socio-environmental impact.

With the inauguration of the Platform, the organization democratized a new way of investing, directly involving people and organizations with a positive socio-environmental impact. In its first round, the Sitawi Platform, through 159 investors, mobilized R$1.5 million for 5 impact businesses in just 59 days, demonstrating the viability and potential of this model. 

The work of Sitawi's Impact Investment team was fundamental in this implementation process, carrying out in-depth financial, socio-environmental impact and business model analyses, informing in its final opinion the best composition of capital to serve the organization, to bring more security both for those who invest and for organizations.

Through meticulous work, ensuring that each participating organization had access to the support they needed, offering not only capital, but also expertise, guidance and support throughout the payment process.

One of the main features of the Sitawi Platform is the diversity of your portfolio. Over the past five years, the organization has invested across a wide range of sectors, regions and initiatives, ensuring that each investor can find opportunities that align with their values and interests. 

With a vision for the future and a commitment to positive impact, Sitawi continues to lead the way in transforming the investment landscape in Brazil. Since 2019, our journey has been marked by strategic partnerships, financial innovation and a deep commitment to sustainable development.
