The Latin American Impact Investing Forum (Foro Latinoamericano de Inversión de Impacto), organized by New Ventures, is the leading convening of impact investing and social entrepreneurship in Latin America.
Jenn Pryce will speak on the panel "From Catalyzing to Scaling: An Ecosystem Approach to Drive Gender Equity and Small Business Growth." This session will focus on how investors can help build local capital markets that support small businesses and intrinsically value gender equity. Panelists will share how investors can support gender smart enterprises along the capital continuum with tools and strategies appropriate to the type of capital they deploy. From supporting women-led first time fund managers to helping established intermediaries pivot to be more gender inclusive, this panel will detail how investors can work together to channel as much private capital as possible in support of gender equity.

Calvert Impact Capital, Community Reinvestment Fund, USA, and more than 25 Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFIs) came together during the pandemic to build recovery programs that expanded access to credit for un- and under-banked small businesses. These programs were built to strengthen and grow CDFIs, which acted as critical economic first responders throughout the last two years.
60 Decibels, a leading impact evaluation firm, was engaged to evaluate the impact of expanding access to credit during periods of economic hardship by speaking directly with the small businesses that were affected by COVID. 60 Decibels studied how access to credit contributes to income creation and wealth building for entrepreneurs, particularly businesses owned by women and under-represented racial and ethnic groups and recently published their evaluation of the New York Forward Loan Fund, one of the first recovery programs in the market.
Join 60 Decibels, Calvert Impact Capital, Community Reinvestment Fund, USA and other partners on March 31, 2022 at 8am Pacific / 11am Eastern to learn more about the new research and the recovery programs.
