On April 18 and 19, 2017, the forum “Solidarity Finance: a tool for development” took place in Costa Rica, San Jose, organized by the Republic of Costa-Rica, member of the international leading group on SSE (ILGSSE).
This two-days event aimed at identifying the challenges faced by the Mesoamerican and Caribbean region in terms of financing and support to social enterprises and organizations with a strong impact on economic, social and environmental development.
The will for dialogue and exchange of good practices at the heart of this regional forum is fully in line with the promotion of social and solidarity economy shared by SSE International Forum. It was also a key step in the organization of the leading group’s international conference on financing for SSE.
Anne-France Piteau, General Manager of SSE International Forum took part to the event where she presented the activities of the leading group of which the association serves as permanent secretary.
