Our Work in Africa

VisionFund's MFIs in Africa are changing the lives of communities in all corners of the continent. Though on average our micro-loan sizes are smaller in Africa - averaging out at just $310 for a first time borrower - we serve more clients with financial inclusion services than in any other region. Our livelihoods solutions help our clients build their businesses, send their children to school, and put nutritious food on the table.

VisionFund is always innovating new financial inclusion solutions in Africa, to better serve the diverse needs of our clients. From our new programme for refugees and host communities in the West Nile, to disaster preparedness and recovery lending and insurance, we are focused on sustainably empowering our clients to break the cycle of poverty, for good.
