About the iniciative

From Latin American biomes to you

We promote entrepreneurial projects that value the biodiversity of Latin American biomes by supporting the sale, marketing, and digital inclusion of these businesses.

How it works

We select and deliver training to businesses with positive impact that contribute to the generation of revenues and the conservation of Latin American biomes. In 2021, this initiative supported entrepreneurs from Amazonia, the Atlantic Forest, and the Cerrado, in Brazil, and Gran Chaco, in Argentina.

Brazil

Entrepreneurs participate in group training sessions and individual mentoring programs to boost the sale of their products on Mercado Libre platform. In its 2021 edition, the program included more than 80 businesses, offering:

Argentina

Thanks to joint efforts with the organizations Rewilding Foundation, Fundación Avina, and Fibo Impacto, we helped 1,200 small-scale producers and artisans living in Gran Chaco offer their products, while supporting biodiversity conservation in this biome. Sellers receive the benefits we give our impact entrepreneurs on our marketplace. Visit our page dedicated to promoting the region's products.
