ABOUT OUR PARENT COMPANY GFI
Grameen Foundation is a global non-profit that unites the power of women with the power of technology to enable the poor, especially women, to end poverty and hunger. It was founded in 1997, inspired by the work of Nobel Laureate Professor Mohammad Yunus, founder of Grameen Bank and a global leader in the fight against poverty. Over the years, Grameen Foundation has grown into a global non-profit that helps the world’s poorest people reach their full potential by providing access to essential financial services and information on agriculture and health. We believe that all of us desire to improve our lives, and that all of us – even the poorest among us – can reach our full potential if we are given access to the right tools and timely information. Our digital health programs provide millions of poor people with health information and improved healthcare delivery, train and manage frontline health workers, and facilitate vaccine clinical trials in outbreak situations.
Likewise, globally, Grameen Foundation’s agriculture programs provides solutions to the problems that confront smallholder farmers every day-whether that is access to finance, farm inputs, weather information, technical information for farm and production management, or markets.
Four main program areas increase the access of women and poor communities to essential services: Community Agent Networks, Digital Financial Services for Women, Digital Innovation for Agriculture, and Bankers without Borders ®.
