Hello and welcome to an Inspiring Adventures Interview!
Last year, I met Leonardo Letelier, the founder of Sitawi – Finance for Good.
Sitawi is the first social finance fund in Brazil, and has loaned out more than $1m and helped over 20,000 people.
It also has a true story of entrepreneurialism behind it, with Leonardo leading his own money for the first loans Sitawi made.
Recently in London I was lucky enough to catch up with Rob Packer, a fund manager in the small Sitawi team, and find out how they are getting on now.
In the audio link below, you can hear what Sitawi is doing now, some examples of the people they have helped, it’s plans for the future, and what the name means too!
(I know some of the audio is a little quiet, a new mic is coming for future interview)
