Impact Investing with a Gender Lens in Latin America
by Value for Women

This report - a first of its kind focused on Latin America - summarizes information gathered from 48 Impact Investors and entrepreneurial ecosystem stakeholders in Latin America, primarily members of the ANDE network as well as 254 firms that comprise their portfolios. It includes information from surveys and key informant interviews with 24 Impact Investors and entrepreneurial ecosystem actors. The focus on the impact investing sector is important because gender equality should be front and center for Impact Investors seeking to achieve financial and social returns on their investments. This report highlights that while it is clear that gender equality is good for business and good for development, Impact Investors in Latin America are still only in the early stages of embedding this focus in their investment process and activities.
