Cinthia Isla

Monitoring, Evaluation, and Learning (MEL) Officer

In my role at Root Capital, I support the impact and advisory team in monitoring, evaluation, and learning (MEL) to optimize our advisory services around the world. I build on existing MEL processes while developing new ones. I then work with my colleagues to convert these learnings into operational changes that improve the efficiency of ourselves and our client businesses. I came to the role at Root Capital after several years of work in monitoring and evaluation across Latin America and the Caribbean, covering a diverse range of international development topics including: climate-smart agriculture, gender rights, youth engagement, and others. I am originally from Iquitos, a city located in the Peruvian Amazon. Outside of the office, I like to explore world cuisines and different cities by foot, read books from Haruki Murakami, Isabel Allende, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie and many others.
