    FINCA established its business in Azerbaijan in 1998 and has been offering financial services to micro and small business clients for almost 25 years throughout most districts of the country. Throughout its history in Azerbaijan, FINCA has always had a special focus on reaching rural entrepreneurs and households and continues to this day to focus on providing financial services mainly to clients in rural and regional areas of Azerbaijan. We also work in the urban areas, including Baku, of course, but the majority of the loan portfolio remains outside of the Absheron peninsula and we expect this regional focus to continue in the future.
