Towards the consolidation of a bond market with social impact in Argentina
06/02/2022 Since 4 weeks

The director of the National Securities Commission (CNV), Mónica Erpen, announced that the creation of a new Simplified and Guaranteed Special Regime to promote bond issues with social impact is being analyzed within the framework of the CNV-UNDP Laboratory.

The working group, which includes participants from the public and private sectors, seeks to support this type of issuance and identify barriers and obstacles that hinder the financial inclusion of new actors related to the socio-productive economy.

In this context, Sumatoria, a civil association dedicated to promoting sustainable financing by expanding access to credit for entrepreneurs, projects, institutions and companies with a positive impact, recently placed a new bond that is the first issue that incorporates social and environmental impact and a gender perspective. The initiative seeks to promote women’s economic empowerment through access to microcredit for vulnerable women, and will stimulate their participation in decision-making and leadership by supporting projects led by them.
