For over 10 years, World Vision’s microfinance partner, VisionFund International, has been improving the lives of children in the developing world by offering small loans and other financial services to families living in poverty. Its clients are able to develop successful businesses, which enable them to ensure their children grow up healthy and educated. Along with other funding sources, grants to VisionFund are used to increase and expand the microfinance institutions (MFIs) owned by VisionFund International, allowing them to impact more lives. In 2015, VisionFund’s network of MFIs located in more than 30 countries in Africa, Latin America, Asia and Eastern Europe impacted nearly 4 million children. By 2019, it aims to improve the quality of life of 9 million children.
In recent years VisionFund has received grants from various governments, foundations, banks and institutions which enabled our MFIs to help more entrepreneurs start and expand their businesses. Such grants have allowed our MFIs to upgrade their technology, taking advantage of mobile banking opportunities, move into new regions, start taking client savings, pilot new products, provide financial education and help clients recover from disasters. Please take a moment and learn how some of our grants are making an impact around the world. If you would like to partner with us on grant opportunities, you may contact us by emailing g...@VisionFund.org.
