Grameen Foundation

Grameen Foundation's mission is to enable the poor, especially the poorest, to create a world without poverty. The Foundation helps the world's poorest – especially women – improve their lives and escape poverty by providing them with access to appropriate financial services, life-changing information and unique income-generating opportunities.

Working with local and global allies, and the poor themselves, the Grameen also creates mobile phone-based solutions that address the devastating effects of “information poverty.” We help the poor to better manage their health, crops, livestock and finances, and even to find new income-generating opportunities – enabling them to improve their lives and break the cycle of poverty for themselves and their families.
