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 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.
At FINCA, you can trust our word and know that every dollar you give goes toward making an impact.
Rupert Scofield has dedicated his life to alleviating poverty. As a founding member and FINCA International’s President & CEO, he has led the organization through decades of growth and change.
Under Rupert’s guidance, FINCA has continuously adapted its approach. He ensures that we stay grounded in our customer research and the insights of the entrepreneurs we back and always keep the goal to alleviate poverty at the heart of our mission.
