Roadmap for Strengthening Social Entrepreneurship in the Philippines

Summary

The Philippine economy is among the fastest growing in Asia, but that growth has not been inclusive. Social Enterprises  have tremendous potential to address the gaps exacerbating poverty and inequality. When properly supported and resources mobilized to achieve greater scale and impact, they are critical vehicles to achieving inclusive growth.

Drawing from IIX’s ten years of experience in the Philippines and in the impact investing space, we have partnered with ADB to present a series of recommendations that will enable social enterprises to achieve scale—by leveraging opportunities in sustainable and innovative finance; building partnerships with public and private sectors through blended finance solutions and inclusive business models; and through driving gender equality and women’s empowerment.
