This initiative, which is Acumen's first-ever agreement with USAID, seeks to invest in pioneering enterprises that operate in conflict-affected municipalities of Colombia to generate wealth, employment and improved incomes for the rural poor. The program will deploy $4 million in financing to for-profit social enterprises that are addressing issues of extreme and multidimensional poverty.
