Facts about Guatemala

Guatemala is the most populous country in Latin America and also one of the poorest. More than half of the population lives below the poverty line, and 13 percent live in extreme poverty. The country has one of the highest malnutrition rates in the world; nearly one-half of children under age five are chronically malnourished.

Since 1989, FINCA Guatemala has provided working capital to Guatemala’s lowest-income families. It has traditionally targeted women clients, knowing that raising their incomes is a proven strategy for improving their children’s nutrition. Today FINCA Guatemala operates 29 branches in urban and rural areas throughout the country, offering Village Banking, individual and local currency loans, savings and insurance.
