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.

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
