Thank you for the impact you’ve made this year! Together we’ve funded more than 170,000 loans and raised more than $120 million for financially excluded people around the world. It costs us more than $3 to facilitate each $25 loan, and we rely on optional donations from individuals like you to cover our costs.

Refugees and IDPs

More than 65 million people have been forced to leave their homes in the wake of human or natural disasters, and most can’t return for many years, if ever. Refugees, internally displaced people and host communities need our support.
