What people say about us

"As a result of recent successful cooperation, we are pleased to recommend Camaleonte Ltd as a valuable connection between entrepreneurs from Latin America and companies from Finland and elsewhere. On a short notice Camaleonte got acquainted with our product range and reflected a clear understanding of our company¹s requirements and needs in the Colombian market. Of special importance to us was the possibility to provide relevant and suitable products for small-holder coffee and grain producers, and to further develop the products together with them. Camaleonte identified and matched our company with a first-rate, socially responsible business partner in Colombia.

Furthermore, Camaleonte introduced us the opportunity to partly finance our project via Finnpartnership which was particularly important for us as for any small and medium enterprise. Camaleonte´s consultants helped preparing the project and personally organized on-site operations in Colombia. The level of integrity and the quality of Camaleonte¹s consultancy, particularly Maija's and Roberto¹s work, consistently exceeded our expectations."
"From January to April 2015, I worked closely with Camaleonte´s Maija Peltola for the ex post evaluation of the Regional Biodiversity Programme for the Amazon Region of the Andean Countries (BioCAN), implemented by the Andean Community (CAN).

The evaluation was carried out in four different countries, in a complex and politically sensible environment and when the programme had already closed. The evaluation was based on contribution analysis and a novel Theory of Change, and the evaluation included interviews both with high-level government officials as well as with project participants from remote indigenous villages.

During every phase of the evaluation, Maija showed great dedication and was always available to walk the additional mile to dig deeper. Maija is truly familiar with the reality of development processes. Her social and financial analyses were accurate, and she could draw well-versed conclusions and helpful recommendations from multiple information sources. She excelled both in independent analysis and team work, and delivered always high-quality knowledge products.

It was enjoyable to work with Maija, and I would warmly recommend her and Camaleonte for any development assignments."
