Alterfin is a co-operative society established under Belgian law in 1994. Alterfin’s shareholders are nongovernmental development organisations, banks and more than 3.500 individuals.
Alterfin is financing microfinance institutions and producers’ organisations in Latin America, Africa and Asia. It contributes to the construction of a financial network in the South that is accessible to small entrepreneurs and farmers.
Our mission is to achieve human dignity in developing countries by promoting individual and collective economic activities, which, started up locally, help to achieve sustainable development.
Our vision on poverty and development in the South is related to a vision on dealing differently and ethically with money in the North. Alterfin wants to link people in the North willing to invest their money in a sensible way to organizations in the South that extend credit to local entrepreneurs and farmers who can use such a loan to build a better future.
