Your impact
through
microfinance

More than 6.1 million families across Asia are growing their small businesses so their children can live in a safe home, eat better food and go to school. 

We're reaching more than 6.1 million families across Asia

Small loans are just the start of the transformation. With money to buy seeds to grow a vegetable patch or a sewing machine to start a tailoring shop, each loan empowers an entrepreneur to increase their income and support their family with shelter, health and education. More than 95% of these entrepreneurs are women – meaning you're directly assisting those who would otherwise struggle to access affordable financial services.

With small loans to grow small businesses, alongside other community development services, your giving is transforming lives for generations to come.
