Financing for Social Entrepreneurship in Peru

In a study conducted by the Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada, "Financing For Social Entrepreneurship in Peru," finds that social enterprises in Peru have to a large extent relied on their founders, friends, and family to finance their businesses.

The study delves into the obstacles and opportunities in financing social entrepreneurship in Peru using a combination of structured interviews, case studies, and secondary research.

According to the study, the challenge for social enterprises in Peru is that the social entrepreneurship ecosystem is nascent with a lack of flexible, patient, catalytic, and risk-tolerant funding sources, particularly for early-stage enterprises outside of the financial services and agriculture sectors.
