Partner description:
Founded in 2006, MCE Social Capital is a nonprofit impact investing firm that uses a pioneering loan guarantee model to generate economic opportunity for women and families living in poverty throughout the developing world.

Leveraging the excellent credit of high net worth individuals and foundations (its guarantors), MCE borrows capital from U.S. and European financial institutions and accredited investors. MCE then strategically deploys this capital to 2 types of organizations:
  • Microfinance Institutions (MFIs) that help people living in rural areas gain access to credit, savings accounts, insurance, healthcare and health education, business education and technical assistance.
  • Small and Growing Businesses (SGBs) in the agriculture value chain, water & sanitation and renewable energy sectors, to create reliable jobs in rural economies, raise smallholder farmers’ incom and address basic needs in underserved areas.
