Corporación Nariño Empresa y Futuro (Contactar) is a Colombian microfinance NGO within GP’s Rural Centered Finance with Education initiative. The MFI is aligned with GP’s objective of deepening inclusion, as a vast majority of its clients live in rural areas and a substantial portion of its clients live under $5.50 per person per day.
Contactar delivers products and services including working capital and fixed asset loans tailored to meet the needs of rural clients. In addition, Contactar provides diverse educational sessions on various topics including sustainable agricultural practices, health & illness prevention, financial literacy, etc.).
ECLOF International provides financial services including credit, savings and insurance alongside education to rural families. GP made our first investment in ECLOF in October 2016 as part of our Rural-Centered Finance with Education initiative.
