IDEPRO is a Development Finance Institution, which provides credit services and business development services for small agricultural and forestry producers and micro and small enterprises in rural and urban level. We especially attend the sectors of quinoa, wood, chestnuts, grape, textiles and tourism, under a productive chain approach.
IDEPRO collects impact information since 2009, based on four main indicators: income, profit, equity and employment.
Through the work with FAST, these indicators are aligned with IRIS.
Indicators’ information is collected at two moments: a) prior to loan disbursement and b) a year after the loan was disbursed. Information is collected through a financial evaluation tool, and is analyzed through statistical tests for comparison of means.
