After decades of hyperinflation, borrowing is considered risky business, so interest rates remain high and long-term loans are scarce. Entrepreneurs pay over 30%/year to borrow money if they have a good credit score.
Venture Capital investing is fraction of capital invested in the United States, at less than $1B USD.
Philanthropic giving totals approximately $10M USD, 1/18th of annual giving the US. Though the government does not provide tax incentives for giving, a philanthropic and social finance culture is emerging and developing slowly.
To tackle these challenges we fund organizations that provide social entrepreneurs subsidized capital and train them in financial literacy to support their growth.
