Magali de Varax

Senior Director, Global Advisory

After finishing a degree in economics and political science and starting a career in poverty reduction, I grew more and more interested in sustainable agriculture and resources management as strategies to achieve global impact at scale. I love how Root Capital pairs finance with training as an integrated way to support rural economies, and am glad that I can apply my background in capacity-building to this work. As Root Capital’s Senior Director, Global Advisory, I’m responsible for standardizing and strengthening our advisory services so that they can be as high-quality and high-impact as possible for the rural businesses we serve. Outside of work, I love to dance, spend time outdoors, and explore my adopted home of Mexico City!
