Example of a social insertion company
An example of a social insertion company can be one that is dedicated to granting microcredits to low-income people in developing countries.
To make the business sustainable, the firm may need to seek investors with low risk aversion. Also, the interest rates on loans should be, on average, higher than those of commercial banks.
As a counterpart, to raise funds, this company will tend to offer relatively high interest rates to its savers. In this way, you will be able to get the capital that you will later transfer as credit.
Finally, this microcredit company, having a social objective, should seek to improve the client's financial situation in the long term. That is, you should not only worry that the debtor repays the loan received.
Taking the above into account, the financial firm can, for example, advise its client to improve their business strategy, processes and / or budget management.
