With headquarters in Washington, DC, our goal at FINCA International is to provide low-income people around the world the tools they need to succeed. FINCA’s programs benefit millions of people across five continents. We do that by offering responsible financial services, such as small loans or savings accounts; by reaching people in remote communities using technology like mobile phones and tablets; and by providing access to life-enhancing products, like solar home systems and clean cookstoves.
Our mission is to alleviate poverty through lasting solutions that help people build assets, create jobs and raise their standard of living.
Our vision is to build a global network of sustainable and scalable social enterprises that improve lives worldwide.
FINCA International (“FINCA”) was founded in 1984 on a radical notion: giving small loans to the poor has the power to transform entire communities in a sustainable way. After impacting tens of millions of lives with responsible financial services, we are widening our focus to catalyze further economic growth and alleviate poverty in underserved markets around the world. We remain boldly committed to market-based solutions, and are supporting the rise of social enterprises delivering basic service and financial innovation to help low-income families and communities achieve a better standard of living.
