MFI PARTNERS

There are a lot of moving parts in a micro-credit operation that provides many small loans to poor entrepreneurs: hundreds of accounting entries, many financial and social reports, tons of phone calls, Skype calls, Zoom calls, texts and emails to name a few. It takes a great team to pull this off. We are very fortunate to have two great teams – SERVIGUA in Guatemala and PANA PANA in Nicaragua. Here are some of the key people that we work with:
