Our work

We are committed to market-based solutions to poverty. Our approach to poverty alleviation is rooted in making real change in people’s lives. We do this with the knowledge and trust that local people know best what can help them.

To catalyze further economic growth and alleviate poverty, we are also supporting the rise of social enterprises delivering basic service and financial innovation.

Combined, our work in finance and enterprises helps low-income communities achieve a better standard of living. To assess the social performance of these programs, our research team measures deep impact through the lens of the customer.
