We loan because...
We want to help create more sustainable and equitable communities all around the world.

About us
We lend to individuals and groups engaged in businesses and services that help them earn a living but also help to protect the environment in their part of the world. We also strive to build green partnerships in our own communities by supporting the women and men who provide businesses, services, and products that benefit people and the Earth.

Some of our team members mainly fund green loans, while others choose to designate a fraction of their loans to green enterprises. These are examples of just some of the loans Green Partnerships has helped to fund:
