Microfinance Programme

BRAC is a development organisation dedicated to alleviating poverty by empowering the poor.

Since launching our microfinance activities in 1974, BRAC has grown to become one of the world’s largest providers of financial services for the poor. Innovative, inclusive, and client-focused, BRAC has utilised its 40 years of expertise to design, test, and adapt loan and savings products to meet the unique needs of people living in poverty.

BRAC believes that sustainable poverty reduction must unite both economic and social development. Our microfinance activities are therefore seen as part of BRAC’s broader, holistic approach to development, by helping to build livelihoods, boost consumption, and improve access to a range of social services. All microfinance clients have access to BRAC’s other programmes, including in education, healthcare, and legal aid.

BRAC currently operates microfinance programmes in seven countries including Bangladesh, Pakistan, Sierra Leone, Uganda, Liberia, Tanzania and Myanmar. BRAC actively shares its knowledge and expertise with external partners and visitors from around the world.

In January 2014 BRAC took ownership of SafeSave, an organisation that offers highly flexible financial services to poor people in Dhaka.
