What are impact businesses?

At SITAWI Finance for Good, we chose the definition built together in the Alliance for Investments and Impact Businesses, which positions them as enterprises that have the clear intention of addressing a socio-environmental problem through their main activity (be it their product / service and / or operation).

These ventures operate according to the market logic, with a business model that seeks financial returns (possible model even within non-profit organizations – as a form of revenue), and are committed to measuring the impact they generate.

WHAT ARE THE CRITERIA THAT DEFINE IMPACT BUSINESSES?

INTENTIONALITY OF SOLVING A SOCIAL AND / OR ENVIRONMENTAL PROBLEM;
IMPACT SOLUTION IS THE MAIN BUSINESS ACTIVITY;
SEARCH FOR FINANCIAL RETURN, OPERATING BY MARKET LOGIC;
COMMITMENT TO MONITORING IMPACT GENERATED.

Check out the testimony of the entrepreneur Filipe Aguiar from Orgânicos In Box, an organization that participated in the 1st Round of SITAWI’s Crowdlending Plataform, raising R $ 645,000.00 through 84 investors:

“Considering the difficulties of access to credit for small and medium-sized companies in the Brazilian market, having this support from SITAWI for the entrepreneur who focuses on impact is very good because in addition to having access to credit that does not exist in the traditional market, it is also a credit with a view that values ​​you for the impact that you as an entrepreneur are bringing to the world and this is an incredible recognition. This is combined with the investor’s awareness of the potential to impact the lives of this capital. Interest rates are affordable and below the market, but on the other hand, it is a resource for growth, ideal for a medium-term plan because the analysis and disbursement process requires good financial planning. ”

Do you undertake / run a business with a positive socioenvironmental impact and are looking for resources for working capital, expansion or escalation?
