Our mission: To empower the poor, especially women, to create a world without poverty and hunger.

The poor have the strength and willpower they need to build better lives. What they lack is opportunity.

That’s why Grameen Foundation exists.

Ours is a People + Technology approach. We design human-centered digital finance and farming solutions to help poor people in developing countries unleash their own capacity. Then we recruit and train some of these people, mostly women, to become Community Agents: trusted neighbors who deliver these tools to their communities.

These Grameen Community Agents bring financial inclusion, market access, and resources right to their neighbors’ doorsteps. The result is a chain reaction of benefits for women and families. Incomes and food security increase. Families can pay fees to send their children to school, or to the doctor when sick. They can build assets and endure emergencies. With each Grameen Community Agent reaching 150 families on average, entire communities gain the tools to lift themselves from poverty.

In 2016, we set a goal of reaching 25 million people by 2025. So far, we've reached 13 million. Will you help us create a world without poverty?
