Grameen Foundation

We create breakthrough solutions – spanning financial, agricultural and health services

Grameen Foundation is a global nonprofit that creates breakthrough solutions spanning financial, agricultural and health services. We use digital technology and strengthen local partner networks to design and deliver solutions that open opportunity for women and families living in poverty.

Our work is inspired by the people we serve. We believe there is no greater force than the power of women driven to improve their own lives and the lives of those around them. But they need real breakthroughs that enable them to overcome the economic, cultural and gender barriers that keep families trapped in poverty.

To engender such breakthroughs, we design strategies that equip women and families with essential tools and knowledge. We train networks of field agents to implement the solutions, and provide training and education to the women themselves. We bring together partners to co-design and scale-up solutions. And, we evaluate our impact to continuously improve the work we do.
