What we do

Bank of the Poor offers microfinance institutions (MFIs) the opportunity to raise debt capital from social investors through our website.

Bank of the Poor provides MFIs a 0% interest rate debt capital. MFIs on-lend this capital at prevailing interest rates and keep the interest income. Losses arising from client default are conveyed or absorbed by Bank of the Poor's social investors.

Where from here

We have a robust plan to grow over a 100 MFIs in over 50 countries and raise 0% interest debt capital from thousands of social investors via our website. As an online fundraising platform, high quality MFIs can now utilize Bank of the Poor to access debt financing from social investors through our website. On the other hand, other less established MFIs can also use our online platform as a source of growth capital and a way to grow over time.
