Facts about Nicaragua

Nicaragua is the poorest—and least developed—country in Central America, and is second only to Haiti in levels of poverty in the Western Hemisphere. Yet, despite the political and economic challenges of the past, Nicaragua today has a stable and growing economy. Poverty is concentrated in rural areas, where access to basic services—including sanitation, drinking water, commerce and banking services—are often nonexistent.

With more than 20 years’ experience assisting Nicaragua’s lowest income entrepreneurs, FINCA Nicaragua is today a regulated financial institution. It serves rural and urban clients through 14 branches, offering agricultural loans, as well as Village Banking, individual and local currency loans, savings and money transfer services.
