First Mile Procurement:

Do you already know how to speak the language of SMEs? At FUNDES, you will learn to connect with them to achieve real and lasting results.

Last-Mile Distribution:

SMEs are critical for reaching the end consumer. On average, they account for over 50% of FMCG sales in Latin America. Therefore, every optimization, improvement, and growth path goes through them, and we help you achieve this goal.

Financial Inclusion:

Millions of SMEs in Latin America are financially illiterate or underserved, and hundreds of products and fintechs have failed to address this problem. We promote access to financial services and close the financial inclusion gap.

Digital Inclusion:

The use and adoption of technology are now essential to ensure the continuity and success of SMEs. We bridge the technology gap for SMEs and help them adopt relevant technologies for their business.


A successful business needs harmony and a social license from neighboring communities. We create economic dynamism in specific regions or localities and promote local economic development.

Women SMEs:

The successful integration of women into the economy is key to development in the region. We promote women's economic empowerment through knowledge and business management.

Sustainable Business Strategy:

It is essential to develop positive economic, social, and environmental balance initiatives. We have extensive knowledge of sustainability and can help promote sustainable growth by modeling and designing valuable ecosystems.
