Andes Impact Partners (AIP), a newly formed spin-off from Grassroots Business Fund (GBF), is building on its over 12-year experience providing long-term mezzanine capital and Business Advisory Services to impactful businesses in Latin America. In addition to managing its own impact investing funds, AIP continues to supervise GBF's portfolio companies in the region.

We aim to support gender equitable inclusive businesses which generate substantial, measurable, and scalable social impact (incomes, or cost savings) for under-served communities in Latin America, helping to improve their quality of life.

This strategy supports the following Sustainable Development Goals:

1 - No Poverty
5 - Gender Equality
8 - Decent Work and Economic Growth
10 - Reduced Inequalities


The team is comprised of experienced professionals who have over 60 years of combined experience managing investments and providing business advisory critical to the success of inclusive businesses. The team is consolidated, having worked together for al least 5 years
