Partner description:

CrediCampo is a microfinance institution (MFI) that spun out of the non-profit foundation Fundacion Campo.  Its mission is to serve as a financial catalyst for El Salvadoran families and communities.  CrediCampo is specialized in rural markets and applies an active participation philosophy, oriented toward client satisfaction and focused on sustainability.

Local to El Salvador, Fundacion Campo had 18 years of experience working with microcredit management and establishing partnerships to support the development of communities and rural families. CrediCampo was created as a separate entity to scale and strengthen Fundacion Campo’s former microcredit division as the demand grew for specialists in rural economic development solutions from the community. 

Trust: Trust in our clients and partners and work earnestly to gain trust in a reciprocal manner
Compromise: CrediCampo is motivated by actions that stimulate development and mutual wellbeing for our clients and our organization
Integrity: To show that transparency for our actions is central to our business and its results
Responsibility: Comply with our moral and contractual obligations with punctuality and vitality
Solidarity: Permanently focused on our internal and external stakeholders

CrediCampo offers an array of products to its clients, ranging from differentiated loan products, remittances and savings depositories.  The institution also helps clients with wraparound services from Fundacion Campo, now a separate entity, for social programs and community development projects.  They are proud to be 100% El Salvadoran in their mission, strategy and vision. 

Status Update - January 13, 2014

Fundación Campo has made the decision to split into two separate entities: Fundación Campo (which provides wraparound services) and CrediCampo (which provides loans). As a result, we have updated their name on Kiva to reflect this change, referring to them going forward as CrediCampo
