Alterfin wants to contribute to more human dignity in developing countries by promoting individual and collective economic activities that are initiated locally and that are contributing to a sustainable development. Self-employment, micro-enterprises and SMEs are necessary instruments for achieving this goal. These small entrepreneurs need access to means of production. One of the essential tools for obtaining this access is appropriate financial services that are offered by local, sustainable and transparent organisations.
Alterfin wants to support the development of local financial sustainable services in the South that are oriented towards opportunity-poor groups in society. These financial services are delivered by microfinance institutions (MFI) and by associations of small producers (ASP) or other organisations that are embedded in the same (agricultural) value chain.
