Alesandra Enobi Nakasone

Junior Loan Officer

As a Junior Loan Officer for Root Capital, I support the lending team with financial analysis, due diligence, and the preparation of loan terms for clients across South America. I then follow up with clients to ensure solid performance for the entire life of the loan. I have fond memories of growing up in the countryside of Peru where my grandparents were smallholder farmers. I went on to study Economics at the University of Lima and have since worked in financial auditing and analysis with an emphasis on agricultural lending. I’m passionate about my work at Root Capital because it gives me the opportunity to apply my training to create a clear impact for thousands of farmers like my grandparents. Outside of work I practice “eisa”, a Japanese folk dance, and like to go for runs around Lima.
