FINCA’s Mission is to
Alleviate Poverty

FINCA International is a non-profit organization with a mission to alleviate poverty through lasting solutions that help people build assets, create jobs and raise their standard of living.

FINCA’s History

FINCA International was founded in 1984 on the radical idea that giving small loans to people in poverty has the power to transform entire communities in a sustainable way. For over 30 years, FINCA has provided tens of millions of low-income people with access to financial services they otherwise would not have.

We have long understood that poverty is multidimensional, and we are now expanding beyond our global success in financial inclusion. Today, we work with partners in agriculture, health care, clean energy, FinTech and other sectors to realize our vision of building a global network of sustainable and scalable social enterprises that alleviate poverty worldwide.
