About Us

Bottom Billion Fund is a new nonprofit that economically empowers the extremely poor at the bottom of the pyramid through proven microfinance solutions.

Our mission is:

  1. to invest in sustainable, scalable and replicable market-based microfinance solutions that effectively include those living in extreme poverty on less than $1.25 a day: the Bottom Billion
  2. to provide financial incentives to MFIs to include Bottom Billion people and document measurable client progress
  3. to build awareness and advocacy for best-of-class microfinance solutions that can effectively help the Bottom Billion leverage their own skills and leave extreme poverty

Our vision is a world free of extreme poverty where everyone has access to client appropriate high-quality financial services that help them improve their lives.
