Access to Financial Services

September 18, 2019

OLIVES works to ensure the poor access sustainable financial products and services on a fair footing through local micro-financing institutions (MFIs). OLIVES sees micro-financing as a strategy to improve the socio-economic position of poor, vulnerable and/or excluded groups in society by increasing their access to adequate and affordable financial and other related services. This will contribute to their ability to support themselves and increase their participation in society and their empowerment.

In the coming years, OLIVES will be focusing more on rural Agri-finance, supplying financial services directed towards small rural producers (farmers), particularly in remote or poorly accessible areas where few financial resources are available.
