Finca

Overview directly from FINCA Global Website:

 

FINCA 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 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 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.

Overview directly from Women's World Banking Website:

 

About Us

Women’s World Banking is the global nonprofit devoted to giving more low-income women access to the financial tools and resources they require to build security and prosperity. For more than 35 years we have worked with financial institutions to show them the benefit of investing in women as customers, and as leaders. We continue to equip these institutions with in-depth market research, with sustainable financial products and consumer education to meet women’s needs.

Women are typically good clients and reinvest in their families and communities. Yet women remain an underserved market—so we equip financial institutions around the world to serve them. We perform market research to learn what financial products and information low-income women need, and develop innovative, practical ways for institutions to do business with women.
