It specializes in financial services, centralizing its skills on the poorest of the working poor through sustainable programs that achieve the the highest success rates in terms of financial performance.

Few banks or other commercial entities are willing to invest in markets in rural areas or in countries in crisis and turmoil. However, these are the places that need help the most. Finca has built strong and successful programs in the world’s poorest countries, such as Haiti and Malawi.

Since the end of El Salvador’s Civil War in 1991, it has made great political, economic, and social gains. Established in 1990, Finca El Salvador operates 10 branches throughout the country offering Village Banking and individual loans, local currency loans, and money transfer services.

We are professional women 55+.  Most of us were active in the Women’s Movement.  We have traveled extensively in developing countries.  On the ground we’ve seen compelling evidence of the truth of the research, the profound difference it makes to society if mothers have food security for their children and sustainable futures for their families. We’ve been awed by the transformation of women who found opportunities to emerge from poverty and taken control of their own lives.  We’ve walked beside them and heard their stories.  We’ve seen their self-esteem grow, their leadership skills emerge and their voices heard.  We can help change the world for these women for decades to come by investing the same passion we summoned for our own battle for women’s equality.
