MICROFINANCE WAS MISSING EQUITY

Eskala blends microfinance and microequity to create and invest in locally owned banking cooperatives in emerging economies. We plan to manage a portfolio of 20,000 community-owned banks that will empower 18 million people living in poverty with financial services.

Why We Are Different

Unlike other microfinance institutions, Eskala doesn’t just lend, it invests to acquire equity positions in banking cooperatives that manage a hyperlocal savings and loan portfolio. The current asset base of 93 banks located in rural and under resourced Central America has generated more than $250k in profit for local communities and was named the best economic development initiative in rural Panama by the World Bank.
