Impact investing allows women like Lucía to receive education and training along with credit, teaching them how to manage their money, grow their incomes and improve their lives.
GP's impact investing focuses on positive impact at the household level. Lucía, pictured here, is a guinea pig farmer in the highland deserts of Peru, where guinea pig is a valued source of protein and an important part of the country's cultural cuisine. Since becoming a client of GP partner ADRA Microfinance three years ago, Lucía has received business training that has helped her successfully scale her operation from 20 guinea pigs to 500, of which she sells approximately 30 per week.
