Evaluation of the ReDes Program
Created in 2010 from a partnership between the Votorantim Institute and the National Bank for Economic and Social Development (BNDES), the program is present in 22 Brazilian municipalities through 40 projects. The projects are divided into four areas of activity, namely: Commerce and Services; Recycling; Food Supply and Creative Economy. The ReDes program aims to stimulate regional economic development by supporting projects that generate work and income, and consequently stimulating the social capital of communities. The project assessed the impact of the ReDes Program on its beneficiaries between 2010 and 2014.
