We're a Different Kind of Financial Institution

Our financial inclusion services are integrated into World Vision, the global Christian relief, development and advocacy organisation, a global leader in improving and transforming the lives of children, their families, and their communities.

VisionFund's financial inclusion solutions enable families and communities in World Vision's program areas to develop a reliable source of income and livelihood. By providing microloans, microsavings and microinsurance services, along with strong partnerships, we are working together to bring families and children out of poverty. For good.
