Annual Impact
Report 2019

Capria has an inclusive approach to impact. We apply global best practices of impact investment and ESG management in order to increase resilience of its portfolio. As a recognition for our efforts as impact leaders in the space, we’ve been selected in the Impact Assets 50 for 6 years in a row. We also are proud to be founding signatories to the IFC sponsored Principles of Impact Management. To increase transparency and share best practices with the industry, we recently published our Operating Principles for Impact Management.

As of December 2019, we had invested in 28 portfolio companies of which more than 50% deliver essential products and services to the low-to-middle income population, such as digital learning, tele-health services and grocery delivery, impacting more than 7 million lives across Latin America, Sub-Saharan Africa and Southeast Asia.

Despite national lockdowns and large-scale supply chain disruptions, the majority of our portfolio is able to continue operations, and in some cases expand. Here are some of our companies impact performance:

Our Theory of Impact

Capria’s theory of impact goes beyond providing catalytic capital, aiming to impact populations or systems that lack access to resources, essential products and services, or higher quality employment opportunities. In the long term, we envision dozens of new markets where thriving entrepreneurial ecosystems will be fueled by local and global capital flow, healthy competition will be established among entrepreneurs and local investors, and a network of advisors and mentors will support the continued ecosystem development.
