FINCA Microfinance Holding Company LLC (FMH) is a social investment partnership that owns and operates microfinance institutions and banks in 20 countries across five continents. FMH’s subsidiaries provide responsible financial services to low-income individuals and their communities, helping people to build assets, create jobs and raise their standard of living. We operate our microfinance network to achieve positive social impact, in line with the FINCA mission but using commercial principles that also require sustainable financial results to ensure the health of our company and our ability to continue expanding services to people in need.
FINCA International Inc. is a Washington, D.C.- based not-for-profit organization and a majority shareholder of FMH. FMH’s minority shareholders are the International Finance Corporation (IFC), KfW, Nederlandse Financierings-Maatschappij voor Ontwikkelingslanden N.V. (FMO), Triple Jump and Triodos.
The FMH partnership brings capital, financial leverage and business acumen to FINCA’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 FINCA’s lending to clients and has supported the ongoing transformation of FINCA’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.
