How We Embrace Fintech Innovation


FINCA Impact Finance is at the vanguard of fintech innovation, testing, investing and incorporating experiences from pilot processes into new financial products and services tailored to the needs of the low-income entrepreneurs we serve.

To unlock the full potential of fintech innovation, including digital financial services and risk management, education is essential. It’s not only important that our clients adopt financial technology, it also matters how they use it. FINCA believes in grassroots education efforts. The better our clients are educated about the utility and features of new fintech innovations, the better they will be protected and the more they will benefit.
