Game-changing solutions for the poor

Our vision is a world without poverty where people have access to resources and opportunities to improve their lives. Our strategy is to catalyze change that enables those living in poverty to achieve economic empowerment. We do this through partnerships to innovate financial and economic inclusion solutions.

We are a passionate team of professionals who are guided by the values of:

  • Partnership
  • Self-reliance and sustainability
  • Pro-poor and inclusive development
  • Human rights
  • Integrity
  • Learning
  • Relevance and impact

These values inform all aspects of our work, including the way we assess new opportunities, engage with partners, evaluate our work, and contribute as a team.
