FINCA International, a Washington, D.C.-based not-for-profit, believes we can break down the vicious cycle of inter-generational poverty by creating economic justice and financial inclusion for all.

FINCA provides low-income people around the world the tools they need to succeed and benefits millions of people across five continents.

As the founder and owner of a network of 20 microfinance institutions across Africa, Eurasia, Latin America, the Middle East and South Asia, FINCA serves the “unbanked” by providing access to basic financial services and enabling full participation in the economy for the poor. FINCA has now gone beyond traditional microfinance by leveraging the latest technologies in mobile banking to better reach low-income entrepreneurs with micro and small business loans, credit lines, savings and more.

FINCA is also expanding through new social enterprises that provide access to critical products like solar lanterns, water filtration systems and cookstoves.
