Indigenous people, African descendant persons, persons with disabilities, and LGBTQ+ persons in Latin America and the Caribbean have greater barriers accessing entrepreneurial support services. For example, in Brazil, the majority of low-income micro-entrepreneurs do not have access to productive credit, something that is particularly true for African descendant people: 37% had their loan requests denied, a percentage that, for whites and mestizos, stands at 28.6% and 23.1%, respectively. They also pay higher interest rates. Mexico has a similar financial inclusion gap, with only 21% of indigenous persons and 21% of African descendants using banking services, rates that are far lower than the financial inclusion rate for those who identify themselves as white or mestizos.
