Investing in people

We all need an income to support our families. But for those with little or no guarantees, getting credit from conventional banks to finance their businesses is very difficult. During its 40 years of activity, Oikocredit has proved that small entrepreneurs, cooperatives and other low income groups from developing countries are creditworthy partners.

Oikocredit was created for those economically disadvantaged groups who need loans to expand their businesses or start activities that allow them to achieve a better life, but do not have access to the conventional financial institutions.

If you are part of a cooperative, a financial intermediary, a small or medium sized enterprise, a fair trade organization or a NGO, located in one of our region's focus countries (Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Paraguay and Uruguay), fulfilling the criteria and with a business plan aligned with Oikocredit's ethics, you may qualify for a loan from Oikocredit. For more information or to proceed to the application of the loan, please contact our local office in your country.
