About us

FINCA International is a leading international Microfinance Institution offering financial services and products to small scale businesses that have been turned down by traditional banks, so that these businesses can start, grow, and diversify with resulting increases in family income, nutrition, employment and well-being.

FINCA International pioneered the “Village Banking method” of credit delivery, now used by hundreds of organizations worldwide. Our programs reach low-income people in more diverse countries than any other microfinance provider. We operate subsidiaries in 23 countries of Africa, Eurasia, the Middle East and South Asia and Latin America, serving over one and a half million people. Our work enables low-income families to create their own solutions to progress.

FINCA International is not a typical charity. Although we are a nonprofit, we operate using sound business principles and an entrepreneurial spirit. We have developed a very innovative organizational structure that set a new standard for the microfinance industry which allows us to mobilize private and commercial capital while keeping true to our mission. We deliver a real “double bottom line” that couples positive social impact with financial sustainability. Our ultimate goal is to combat poverty by creating employment, raising family incomes and reducing poverty world-wide.FINCA’s mission is to alleviate poverty through lasting solutions that help people build assets, create jobs and raise their standard of living.
