Facts about Latin America & the CaribbeanFINCA has been in Latin America and the Caribbean since 1989 and currently operates in five countries: Ecuador, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras and Nicaragua. We fight poverty in the region by ensuring low-income and unbanked women and men can access basic financial services including: • loans to build a business and grow livelihoods • savings accounts to keep money safe and build a cushion for hard times • insurance to protect assets from major or unexpected life events • money transfers to safely send money to family members living far away. FINCA also uses innovative banking technology like mobile banking in Haiti to reach those in remote areas and make banking easier and more convenient. By offering financial services to people living in poverty in Latin America and the Caribbean, we are providing a sustainable method for women and men to improve the quality of life for themselves and their families.
