List all the funding sources that are required for the sustainability of this solution
International Investment Funds, Governments, International Donors. International Development Banks, private investors,
Demonstrate how your proposed solution has the capacity to graduate from dependence on public finance. What is the time frame?
CAPCEM is will launch and manage next January, a private SME investment fund that will need capital for financing and expansion. Currently CAPCEM is able to cover staff costs. As the fund will expand, additional capital will be required to support the amount of companies we aim to reach.
Demonstrate how your proposed solution will survive a potential loss of its largest private funding source
Given that CAPCEM is operating for more than 3 years and was able to grow from a unit from another foundation and now is a independent foundation. A loss in capital from a large funding source will affect in the amount of SMEs that we want to work with. The possible scenario will be that we will continue working with the current amount of companies.
Please tell us what kind of partnerships, if any, could be critical to the greater success and sustainability of your innovation
Will be important to find partnerships and work with International organizations that work on the same areas but on a bigger scale. CAPCEM can be an interesting partner to channelize funds and receive economic benefits and social impact from a developing country like Bolivia. CAPCEM can offer them the assessment and knowledge core to identify SME that need working capital to grow and develop productive areas in Bolivia
Are there non-financial issues that could threaten the sustainability of your proposed solution?
As in any other country, can exist policies and attitudes from the government that can affect the work of a foundation. But CAPCEM is working on the same issues that the current government is willing to work. Also the know –how developed from the experiences and initiatives that developed CAPCEM´s business model, give the management the experience and knowlledge to focus the business on particular areas like the agribusiness.
Please tell us if your proposed solution aims to scale up through a high growth sector, expand immediately to multiple sectors, and/or scale up geographically
CAPCEM tiene el mandato de trabajar solo con PyMEs, debido a su experiencia previa se ha demostrado que son el motor de crecimiento en el pais y su impacto puede ayudar a erradicar la pobreza y mejorar la calidad de vida de muchas personas, entre productores, proveedores y clientes finales.
