Leveraging social finance: case studies with Leena Yahia and Rebecca Waterhouse
Social finance is an alternative to traditional finance models. While it may not be a panacea to solve all social problems, it has tremendous potential to propel organizations by offering a funding model that can help them ensure their long-term financial sustainability. While we’ve been hearing more about social finance in recent years, it is not a new concept. The origins of this type of financing are found at the grassroots level - it was created a long time ago by communities to finance community-driven initiatives.
In this episode, with guests Leena Yahia of Imagine Canada, and Rebecca Waterhouse of Raven Indigenous Impact Foundation, we explore examples of social finance repayable investment and dive into case studies of organizations that are using social finance to help them achieve their mission.
