FINCA has entered into a unique partnership with Wildhearts, an innovative, charitable organization committed to launching companies that serve humanity, believing that businesses can play a crucial role in the fight for economic justice. Chosen as its operational partner, FINCA will benefit from generous support provided through Wildhearts, increasing the amount of loan capital available to our clients.
Their first venture - Wildhearts Office Supplies – provides office supplies at competitive prices, investing every penny of profit into organizations, like FINCA, that work to economically empower the poor.
"By combining philanthropy with entrepreneurial efficiency, we create sustainable, vigorously-commercial vehicles that enable businesses to fulfill their CSR responsibilities and take a stand against economic injustice in an efficient and credible way," says Wildhearts Founder Mick Jackson. "We're excited to be partnering with FINCA, and look forward to a rewarding, long-term relationship."
Mick and Wildhearts Director Carys Petrie recently visited FINCA operations in El Salvador, Guatemala and Mexico, witnessing first-hand the dedication and professionalism of FINCA staff, and most importantly the resilience, creativity and business acumen of FINCA clients.
