The vast majority of the world’s poor lack access to formal financial services. Microfinance institutions are increasing access to financial services by the poor, but their reach and ability to scale continues to be limited.
Improve the lives of the poor and underserved in the developing world. We provide affordable credit and banking services to low-income individuals and small businesses in underserved markets in order to create jobs and increase economic opportunities in low-income communities.
