ABOUT US

FINCA is Committed to Making an Impact

FINCA was founded on the radical idea that giving small loans to people in poverty has the power to transform entire communities. The idea proved to be remarkably effective. Today, FINCA provides financial services to millions around the world.

We also are taking our deep, on-the-ground experience in microfinance to build a community of social enterprises that deliver sustainable solutions. The interventions delivered by these social enterprises range from getting a woman and her family access to healthcare and proper sanitation to helping a farmer secure her property rights and get a fair price for the products she grows, and much more.

We are making a sustainable impact in helping people build a better future.

On November 27, 2022, Rupert Scofield, FINCA’s co-founder, President and CEO, passed away.

Rupert’s death is a monumental loss to FINCA and the global community. Rupert constantly worked to break the cycle of poverty through groundbreaking thinking. He helped others see beyond how things are to how they could be.

To celebrate Rupert’s life and continue to expand on his vision, we have—with blessing of his family—established the Rupert Scofield Memorial Fund.
