“Change comes from below and by taking action. This is your chance!”

“Equality. Fair chances. Sustainability. People talk of nothing else these days. But now it is time to act. One of the things you can do is invest in safe securities that still yield a return and at the same time lend a helping hand to enterprising people in developing countries. If you – like our more than 1900 shareholders – help to back up our microcredits, you will enjoy both a financial and a social return. Together we make the entrepreneurial dreams of brave and creative men and women come true in areas where financial support, confidence and specific advice are not self-evident. Promising results, that is what we aim for. Welcome to Incofin cvso.”

Incofin cvso, the flag that covers a magnificent cargo

You don’t care for vague abbreviations? Neither do we. But writing ‘cooperative company with social purpose’ (in Dutch: coöperatieve vennootschap met sociaal oogmerk (in short: cvso) in full every time takes up too much space which we prefer to use for more interesting things. Through our cooperative company with social purpose – which we will call ‘cvso’ from now on – you do something good for yourself and for microcompanies in developing countries.

Globally, over two billion adults only have limited access or no access at all to financial services. Many of them are making plans to take matters into their own hands to build a better future. But setting up or expanding a business is often not possible without credit. Furthermore, those people aim to find a job or are working in less evident economic, geographic, social or political circumstances … In other words, to stand a good chance of success, it takes more than just negotiating a loan to set up or expand a business.

Through our 49 local financial partners we provide 3.2 million purpose-driven micro-entrepreneurs with sound advice, practical experience, company visits, training, etc. That way we give them something extra to grasp hold of as well as confidence, and we can be sure that they have the required knowledge, dedication and sense of responsibility. Our goal: reach and help as many people as possible with a low income, and guarantee the sustainability of projects. That is why, in addition to financing, we offer our financial partners also customized technical support.
