FINCA International Launches Emergency Response Fund for COVID-19

FINCA International mobilized to address the needs of the most vulnerable in the countries where it works, launching the FINCA Emergency Response Fund to provide emergency relief to low-income communities and bridge support to early-stage social enterprises affected by the coronavirus pandemic across FINCA’s global footprint.

Donations to the fund will provide flexible financial support to low-income entrepreneurs and high-impact start-ups working in health, education, energy and agriculture, and mobilize FINCA’s financial system—the FINCA Impact Finance network—for humanitarian relief cash transfers. The fund also will support public health messaging to limit the spread of coronavirus infections and the distribution of relief supplies through FINCA’s extensive community-based network, and crisis interventions.
