Who are we?
FUNDES Latin America, a consulting firm dedicated to the competitive development of micro, small and medium-sized companies in Latin America. Present in 17 countries and a track record of more than 35 years generating economic and social regional impact, we work together with large companies, development agencies, foundations and governments to research, design and implement strategies to grow with MSMEs.
We mainly work with two lines of business:
FUNDES, as a consultancy firm that supports large companies to develop and connect the links in their value chain and ecosystem that involve MSMEs.
FUNDES, as an innovation laboratory, leverages pilot projects and non-reimbursable financing to test solutions and innovative models for the development, digitization and articulation of MSMEs. Once their impact is proven in the field, these solutions enter an acceleration process that seeks to transform the pilot project into a self-sustaining program, and said program into an independent social enterprise, with a sustainable business model.
