Mission and Vision


We strive to end poverty through sustainable and scalable solutions that are driven by the insights and needs of people in the communities where they live and work.


We believe all people should have the opportunity to leverage their wisdom, talent and effort to determine their own destiny.


With headquarters in Washington, DC, our goal at FINCA International is to provide low-income people around the world the tools they need to succeed. FINCA’s programs benefit millions of people across five continents. We do that by offering responsible financial services, such as small loans or savings accounts; by reaching people in remote communities using technology like mobile phones and tablets; and by providing access to life-enhancing products, like solar home systems and clean cookstoves.
