Your support helps us to reach hardworking people around the globe.

Why donate

Three billion people live in or near poverty. They are left out of, or poorly served by, the world’s financial system. Without access to financial tools, like savings, credit, and insurance, their ability to manage their lives, weather shocks, and seize opportunities is limited.

With your support, people around the world will be empowered to improve the lives of family members, employees, and neighbors in critical ways — with better nutrition, regular schooling, or simply a roof that doesn’t leak.

Join us to create a world with economic opportunity for all.
