To sustain profound and lasting impact in the fight against poverty, FINCA International is fortunate to have strong partners who share our commitment to building brighter futures through financial inclusion.
FINCA International’s Primary Partners in Development include:
Inter-American Development Bank (IDB)
Through its Multilateral Investment Fund (FOMIN), IDB supports FINCA with both loans and targeted technical assistance that allow FINCA to expand outreach into rural areas, improve operations and increase the use of technology in delivering services to our microfinance clients.
International Finance Corporation (IFC)
Serving as the lead social investor in FINCA Microfinance Holding Company LLC, IFC’s leadership and support have helped FINCA to improve network-wide governance and risk management systems and to deliver digital financial services in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
Oesterreichische Entwicklungsbank AG (OeEB)
The official development bank of the Republic of Austria, OeEB partners with FINCA to support the development of human resources, brand recognition and technology improvements in Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan. OeEB has also provided loan funds to FINCA’s operations in Azerbaijan.
United Nations Capital Development Fund (UNCDF)
Supporting FINCA’s efforts to increase financial inclusion for the next generation in Sub-Saharan Africa, UNCDF has partnered with FINCA in the DRC and Uganda as part of their YouthStart program. As a steward of MasterCard Foundation funds, UNCDF also helped FINCA to develop savings products and financial literacy programs tailored to meet the needs of youth ages 12–24.
United States Agency for International Development (USAID)
USAID played a key leadership role throughout the history of FINCA International. This was renewed in 2014 through the funding of two programs. In Jordan, FINCA and USAID piloted a program integrating microfinance loans and entrepreneurship training for young business persons. Through USAID’s Global Innovation Lab’s support, FINCA has conceived, developed and executed a last-mile distribution company focused on providing livelihoods and selling socially responsible products to individuals at the bottom of the pyramid in Uganda.
United States Department of Agriculture (USDA)
Investing in market-based agricultural development is a key building block in the alleviation of poverty in developing countries. With the support of USDA, FINCA International has pioneered agricultural financial products and deployed groundbreaking technology in 11 countries through 14 programs helping our small enterprise farmers and business owners all along the agricultural value chain to succeed.
