Between 2003 and 2014 more than 29 million Brazilians rose out of poverty and are now seeking “to purchase higher quality education and healthcare, sustainable consumer goods, and ethically-sourced food,” according to a new report on the Brazilan impact investing opportunity from the ImPact, which launched its Brazilian chapter this week.

Brazilian funds or investors have only contributed about a third of the $76 million invested in impact businesses since 2003. The rest has come from international investors.

In a podcast last week, ImpactAlpha spoke to the ImPact’s Fernando Scodro of Grupo Baoba, who sees growing interest among the next generation of wealthy families.
