Our Work in Eastern Europe
The Eastern European Region has presented an exciting opportunity for VisionFund to reach the poor. Economic and political factors create a setting for microfinance different from any other place in the world. VisionFund's microfinance institutions create opportunities for individuals to improve quality of life, mostly through business ventures in commerce and agriculture.
VisionFund works hard to ensure the right financial inclusion solutions are right for the Eastern European context, to better serve the diverse needs of our clients in all countries in which we work. VisionFund are focused on sustainably empowering our clients to break the cycle of poverty, for good.
