How We Work

We work alongside carefully selected local partners to ensure that people have the access to loans, training and savings that enable them to lift themselves out of poverty. Through innovative technology, rural outreach and training, these tailored services equip clients to develop businesses, to save and to insure against an uncertain future.

We work in local partnership

We work alongside carefully selected local partners to ensure that people have the access to loans, training and saving that enable them to lift themselves out of poverty. These tailored services equip clients to develop businesses, to save and to insure against an uncertain future.

Working through local partners ensures we are best meeting the needs of the families we seek to server. Loan officers and staff of these partners speak the local languages, understand community challenges and concerns and, in doing so, enable you to have a greater impact.

Committed to helping families transform their lives, we only partner with capable local organisations that share our mission and values.

We use Innovative Technologies

Over the last 10 years, we have worked with carefully selected partners to use innovative technologies, such as mobile-phone banking, to reduce costs and conveniently link clients to financial services and support - regardless of where they live.

Over half of those living in poverty use mobile phones. We ensure that our programmes enable clients to repay loans or transfer funds into savings accounts from their mobile device. They can also check account balances, transfer money, pay bills, receive salary or government payments, and buy phone minutes.
