Criteria

Direct Oikocredit financing is available to organizations and groups. We reach individuals at the grassroots level indirectly through our financing of microfinance institutions and cooperatives.

  • Oikocredit's loans must reach grassroots groups in developing countries: cooperatives, financial institutions or small and medium enterprises with real potential for generating a wide social impact.

  • Financial returns must be widely spread (and not benefit just a few)

  • There must be a clear need for the kind of financial service requested.

  • Initiatives must be financially viable and sustainable, with suitable management in place, and able to reach autonomy in a reasonable period of time to take full advantage of Oikocredit's loans' benefits.

  • The initiative must contribute to the social and/or economic progress of the community it is placed in.

  • Projects where women are direct beneficiaries and are influential in management and/or implementation take priority.

  • Special attention is given to environmental impact and animal welfare.
