IDB names sitawi best socially responsible and impact investment project in Latin America

Thanks to a public vote, sitawi is proud to have named the best socially responsible investment project in Latin America by the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) as part of their beyondBanking Awards 2011. This puts sitawi among the most innovative organizations, creating a more sustainable and inclusive financial system and fitting with our objective of creating Finance for Good. The awards took place in Uruguay and you can find out more here: http://bit.ly/wnKvua

Last time, we mentioned our recent loan to CIES, who work through mobile health vans to help disadvantaged communities. With the help of sitawi, they have used their vehicles to serve several areas and provide cardiology, ophthalmology, general practice and other consultations: in one weekend in Santa Catarina, they conducted 150 ophthalmology appointments and 43 cataract surgeries.

And this is what people are saying about another one of our clients, Feira Preta, who organize the largest event of black culture in Latin America (according to the magazine Raça Brasil):

“I want to thank Adriana for letting us take part in this fantastic event for another year. We’ve been coming for five years and she puts so much effort into making every year better than the one before. The first time I came, my wife was pregnant and this time I was able to bring my son for the first time” Danilo Expedito – exhibitor at Feira Preta

“If it weren’t for sitawi, there wouldn’t be a Feira Preta” – Adriana Barbosa – manager of Instituto Feira Preta

BID reconhece sitawi como melhor projeto socialmente responsável e de investimento de impacto na América Latina

Temos o orgulho de anunciar que a sitawi foi reconhecida pelo Banco Interamericano de Desenvolvimento (BID) como melhor investimento social da América Latina no prêmio beyondBanking. Este prêmio coloca a sitawi como uma das organizações mais inovadoras por estimular um sistema financeiro mais inclusivo e sustentável. Os prêmios do beyondBanking foram entregues no Uruguai. Saiba mais aqui: http://bit.ly/wgG3vA

O empréstimo mais recente realizado pela sitawi foi destinado à organização CIES que opera vans e carretas médicas que atendem comunidades desprovidas de um sistema de saúde de qualidade. Com a ajuda da sitawi, o CIES fez uso de seus veículos para levar seu atendimento a várias regiões, fornecendo consultas de cardiologia, oftalmologia, clínica geral, entre outras. Durante um final de semana em Santa Catarina, por exemplo, 150 exames de oftalmologia e 43 cirurgias de cataratas foram realizados.

E isso é o que as pessoas falaram sobre um  outro recente empréstimo social feito pela sitawi para o cliente Feira Preta - que organiza o  maior evento de cultura negra da América Latina-segundo a revista Raça Brasil:

“Gostaria de agradecer a Adriana por mais um ano em que pudemos participar deste maravilhoso evento. Há cinco anos que estamos juntos e é notória a constante luta dela em fazer a Feira melhor a cada ano. Quando comecei a participar, minha esposa estava grávida e desta vez pude trazer meu filho pela primeira vez” Danilo Expedito – expositor da Feira Preta

“Não faríamos a Feira Preta se não fosse pela sitawi” – Adriana Barbosa – gestora do instituto Feira Preta

sitawi is proud to have been selected as a finalist for the Inter-American Development Bank’s second beyondBanking Awards! These awards are for the most sustainable environmental, social and corporate governance projects in Latin America and sitawi is competing for the Socially Responsible Investment Award. The final winner will be decided by a public on-line vote until 24 February and you too can participate! Find out how here: http://on.fb.me/wQHU1o

At the end of last year, sitawi made its most recent loan to CIES (Centro de Integração de Educação e Saúde). This organization provides high-quality, low-cost healthcare to needy communities and has attended to 57,000 people over the past 3 years.

CIES works primarily through mobile health vans to close the gap in the public health system between basic healthcare provision and more specialized hospital treatment. The organization also works with companies to provide healthcare to workers’ families and communities, as well as educating its users in prevention, both in terms of information and early diagnosis.

The loan for CIES is for R$200,000, which will allow CIES to expand its operations into a new city in rural São Paulo state and a favela in Rio de Janeiro. These two projects aim to provide over 30,000 appointments and examinations.

No final do ano passado, a sitawi concedeu o seu mais recente empréstimo social para o CIES (Centro de Integração de Educação e Saúde). Esta organização proporciona atendimento médico de alta qualidade e baixo custo para comunidades carentes e já atendeu 57.000 pessoas nos últimos 3 anos.

O CIES trabalha primeiramente através de suas vans da saúde para preencher a lacuna existente no sistema público de saúde entre prestação de serviços básicos e tratamento hospitalar especializado.  A organização também trabalha com empresas, proporcionando atendimento médico às famílias dos trabalhadores e comunidades, assim como educando seus usuários na prevenção, tanto em termos de informação de doenças como em diagnóstico precoce das mesmas.

O empréstimo para o CIES foi de R$200.000, o que permitirá a organização expandir suas operações em São José dos Campos, na zona rural de São Paulo e também no Complexo do Alemão, uma favela no Rio de Janeiro. Estes dois projetos visam atender mais de 30.000 consultas e exames.

Instituto Feira Preta is sitawi’s newest client

In October, sitawi provided a social loan to Instituto Feira Preta, an organization active nationally to promote the socio-cultural development of Afro-Brazilians and to foster entrepreneurship in the community. The loan of R$100,000 was made within the scope of our partnership with Artemisia and aims to anticipate the takings from the sale of stands at the fair organized by the organization every year.
