Responsible Finance

Responsible Finance providers offer microfinance loans to start-ups and individuals as well as established enterprises.

Responsible Finance provides access to fair, affordable finance to people and businesses, usually taking the form of loans.

Responsible Finance providers tailor their services locally to the needs of those often excluded. They offer a personal service, a supportive approach and a real alternative to traditional bank lenders and finance providers. Their finance creates jobs, boosts enterprise and fuels growth. Responsible Finance providers aim to build hope, create opportunity and change lives. They are driven by a mission to bring social and economic benefits to people and places.
