Facts about Afghanistan

Decades of conflict have helped make Afghanistan’s living standards among the lowest in the world. Today, Afghanistan’s economy depends heavily on foreign aid, and its people suffer from high unemployment, inadequate housing, and shortages of clean water, electricity, and medical care.

FINCA Afghanistan serves clients throughout the capital city of Kabul—especially women, ethnic minorities, and returning refugees—with Village Banking, small group and individual loans. FINCA Afghanistan was the first microfinance program in the country to offer Shariah-compliant financial services, which conform to Islamic principles.
