We operate our microfinance network to achieve positive social impacts. Our SRI model holds true to our purpose while relying on commercial principles that deliver sustainable financial results. Long-term financial sustainability ensures our ability to continue expanding financial inclusion to people in need.
FMH’s investors are led by FINCA International Inc. a Washington, D.C.- based not-for-profit organization and a majority shareholder of FMH.

The FMH partnership brings capital, financial leverage and business acumen to FINCA Impact Finance’s microfinance operations. This is especially important as the microfinance landscape evolves to include new technologies and new expectations from clients, regulators and traditional supporters. Since 2011, the partners’ capital has helped expand our lending to clients and has supported the ongoing transformation of FINCA Impact Finance’s microfinance subsidiaries into licensed financial institutions that can offer a full range of essential financial services. It has also enabled FMH to borrow additional funds from the capital markets, as needed to support our growth and client needs.
