FINCA Canada 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 Canada was established in 2007 as part of the global FINCA International network which was founded in 1984. 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.
As Executive Director, Drew Boshell is responsible for the successful leadership of the institution in accordance with the strategic direction set by the Board. He has overall strategic and operational responsibility for FINCA Canada’s staff, financial performance, program development and expansion, and execution of FINCA Canada’s mission.
He has over 20 years of experience as a senior global development executive delivering high social impact programs including global health, poverty reduction, community development, education, youth development and environmental initiatives in the U.S., Asia, Africa, Middle East, Latin America and Eastern Europe. His deep knowledge of current and future challenges that can impact the revenue streams and programmatic focus of international development programs, and his successful track record in developing and stewarding multiple partnerships have resulted in significant programmatic growth and impact in the organizations he has worked for.
