At FINCA, we believe that listening to people is the best way to understand the needs of a community.
We also believe there is no stronger way to listen than by providing access to what communities need most. FINCA believes in letting people decide if the solution works for them.
And we believe that the best solutions to our world’s most pressing challenges come when entrepreneurs are empowered to become change agents for their communities.
How Our Social Enterprise Started
Recognizing the power of our global grassroots network we began to ask:
What if we could harness the entrepreneurial spirit to help solve pressing needs like energy, water and sanitation or food security? And what if we could leverage our connections to communities that need better solutions?
We connect communities to entrepreneurs and support access to life-improving products through FINCA loans. By doing so, FINCA is changing how we solve the hardest development challenges.
Currently, FINCA is seeking solutions that address energy, clean water, sanitation and food security – whatever is most needed in the community. We are bringing solar home lights, water filters and clean cookstoves to the communities we serve. When our clients cannot afford to buy these products with a day’s wage, we provide them with affordable loans.
