About Us

Grameen Foundation-USA is a dynamic, global organization that applies a powerful tool, microfinance, to empower the world's poorest people to escape poverty. In just seven years, GF-USA has established a global network of 46 partners in 20 countries and has impacted an estimated four million poor people, living on less than $1 a day, in Asia, Africa, the Americas, and the Middle East. Through its microfinance partners, very small loans are given to very poor people, mostly women, to start and expand tiny, self-sustaining businesses. As they quickly begin to earn an income, they improve their living conditions, advance the health of their families, and send the children to school.
